– Taking into account the new law, which will enter into force on February 1, Żabka stores will be available and open to customers all the time, because the legislator, which makes us very happy, took care of the interests of small businesses stores – announced Mikowaj in an interview with Business Insider Editor-in-Chief Polska Kunica Adam Manikowski, Managing Director abka Polska. He also added, “It will be the entrepreneur’s decision in the end.”
Manikovsky noted the exception that allowed the store to open on the seventh day of the week, provided that the entrepreneur or concessionaire was behind the counter. – This exclusion in the law is very important from the point of view of not only the customer, but also the construction of the competitiveness of small shops – he said.
According to the manager’s words, the store chain will no longer use the exception for the post office, thanks to which we can usually shop in stores on subsequent Sundays. Post offices are one exception to the Sunday trading ban.

However, Sunday’s Trade Restriction Act provides for a number of exceptions in the case of stores that can sell on these days. These are stores run by entrepreneurs “on their own behalf and for their own account”. This law does not apply to gastronomy. Accordingly, restaurants and bars will be allowed to open their doors. Her work in malls is a problem.
