We’re open: its been a long running battle but Western Australia has finally opened up to Sunday selling.
The change to trading laws in the mining state allows all stores in Western Australia trade on Sunday from 11am-5pm.

The move will see it become the biggest shopping day of the week, WA’s premier predicted.

Major retailers are likely to coin it after the removal of trading laws that banned large stores like Coles, Woolies and Harvey Norman, from opening on Sunday.

Harvey Norman previously engaged in a legal battle with the state government over the trading laws.

Myer boss Bernie Brookes says his company would speed up refurbishment of stores in the mining boom state in light of the change.

 “There is no doubt that West Australians are voting with their feet,” WA premier Colin Barnett said at the first day of the new trading hours on Sunday last.

And very quickly Sunday shopping will become the main shopping day of the week, if not already.”

He also predicted electrical items would be a big winner.

“Particularly in areas like fashion or electrical items and furniture, that’s an opportunity to take your time and look at separate outlets, for husbands and wives to go out together.”
