Let’s Make Sunday
Shopping a Reality
Have you ever needed medicine on Sunday but not been able to purchase it? Ever needed lettuce for a salad to bring to a family gathering, or a last minute birthday gift for a loved one? Today we can’t purchase these items in Steinbach; but what if we would allow all businesses a choice to be open on Sundays?
Steinbach City Council recently decided not to listen to your opinion on Sunday shopping, but you have the right to be heard and vote for whether or not you want Steinbach retailers to have the option to be open on Sundays during October 24th’s municipal election.Make your
About Sunday Shopping
in Our Community
The idea behind Sunday shopping laws originated in the 17th century before laws limiting the number of hours a person could work in a week came into effect, and before people could move, work, and worship freely.
Everyone in our community has, at some point been a Sunday shopper. You have probably bought gas, or had lunch at a restaurant. Maybe you’ve swum at the Aquatic centre, bought a loaf of bread or milk at a convenience store or even attended a Pistons hockey game. These are all forms of Sunday shopping.
Sunday Shopping and Faith
A person whose religious beliefs prevent them from working on their holy day — whatever day that may be, has their job protected by LAW.
Sunday shopping laws used to be absolute, but these days there are dozens of exceptions for businesses should the business desire to be open. These businesses include:
- Amusement Halls
- Movie Theatres
- Tourism Facilities
- Recreation Facilities
- Educational Facilities
- Vehicle Repair Shops
- Any business with 4 or less employees
