Domestic retailers are allowed to open for the first time today due to an exemption. However, the one-time special regulation does not apply to supermarkets and drugstores. Due to the lockdown, stationary trade this year has fallen by three shopping Saturdays in Advent and the traditionally strong Immaculate Conception Day. However, the open Sunday before Christmas will only be able to compensate for a fraction of the lockdown sales loss.

Retail researchers at the University of Linz expect additional sales of 150 million euros. According to estimates, sales on open Sundays are comparable to a Friday, but not to a Saturday during the Advent season. Employees who volunteer for this day earn double and get an extra day off.

The exceptional Sunday is not intended to be a door-opener for the general liberalization of store hours. The union rejected further special regulations for Sunday opening.
