Retail trading hours
According to the Retail Trading Hours Act 1987, retail shops are categorised as General Retail Shops, Small Retail Shops, Special Retail Shops, Filling Stations. Each category has different trading hours, some shops (such as small retail and special retail shops certified by the DOC) are allowed to open every day of the year. Please refer to Western Australia’s current Acts for details.

Regarding the wages and penalties payments during the public holidays, the DOC is the only authorised organization to explain/answer questions. Neither the City, nor the Chamber is authorised to answer these questions.

There is a hotline number provided by the DOC head office in Perth, which is 62511406.

All shops (except General Retail Shops) needs to check with the above hotline to see if they can open on 25 Apr or/and 27 Apr, and if the employers should pay penalty wages.
