Open shops in Vienna on Sunday?

shopThe discussion if shops in Austria should be opened or closed on Sunday continues. Today the economic town councilor of Vienna Sepp Rieder (Socialdemocrats) went into public, and declared his positive thoughts about open shops on Sunday within certain tourism zones in Vienna.

But Rieder also worries about the consequences of such a decision. If some shops in certain areas of Vienna are allowed to open on Sunday, the other shop owners which are not allowed would feel disadvantaged.

A clear “NO” for open shops on Sunday showed a public opinion poll of the trade union for private employees in the centre of Vienna. Almost 94 percent voted against the campaign for open shops on Sunday.
