The City of Greater Geraldton wishes to advise of extended trading hours approved by Minster for Commerce, Hon Michael Mischin MLC, for Easter Monday 28 March, 2016.
General retail shops, other than motor vehicle businesses, are authorised to be open from 10am to 5pm. It is up to the discretion of the individual trader whether or not they choose to open their doors for these additional hours.
Please note that Easter Monday is the only public holiday which has been approved up until Saturday 10 December, 2016. Other holidays during this time (including Good Friday, ANZAC Day, Western Australia Day and the Queen’s Birthday) do not have authorisation and retail shops should remain closed.
The City will submit another application to the Department of Commerce in May 2016, for the extended trading hours during the period from 11 December 2016 to 3 January 2017. The outcome will be advertised in due course.
