Here's the extended Christmas trading hours for this year

Minister for Commerce, the Hon Michael Mischin MLC, has approved the City’s application for trading hour extensions to benefit all shoppers and retailers in the Greater Geraldton region during the lead up to the festive season.

Extended hours preceding Christmas include:

Sunday 15 December, from 10am to 4pm

Sunday 22 December, from 10am to 4pm

Monday 23 December, from 6pm to 9pm.

It is up to the discretion of the individual trader whether or not they choose to open their doors for these additional hours.

(Keep in mind smaller retailers can already trade any hours they choose, however expect the larger retailers to take full advantage of these extended hours.)
