Board Of Trade Asking To Change Sunday Shopping Hours

The Saint John Board of Trade has asked its members what they think about Sunday shopping--and they've spoken loud and clear.

81.5% of the Board of Trade members surveyed said they'd support store owners being able to choose their own hours on Sundays. 1.3% were undecided. 

The overwhelming support numbers means the Board of Trade will ask Common Council to amend the Sunday Shopping by-law. There had been some discussion of only afternoon hours on Sundays, but the response to a second survey question confirmed the Board of Trade members want full flexibility, including the morning.
