      Are the shops open tomorrow?

      Are the shops open tomorrow being ANZAC day? In particular booze and food for a BBQ or should I do that tonight?

      Do it tonight Tim- our local Woolies is shut. I suppose IGA and those type of shops might be open? Get it over with now then you can relax tomorrow. I've just been to Liquorland for my 5 ltrs of white for $16.99
      Hope you have a good day.

      If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...
      If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

      I read that because it is Saturday, then Sat is being treated as a bank holiday. Next year, the Sunday ANZAC bank holiday will move to Monday. So I guess a lot of shops will be closed, but it does not seem to be across the board. We still do not know for sure if our son's school is closed on Monday

      I think you will find that most supermarkets etc are open from 1.00PM,certainly that is the case here in Victoria,
      Actually I am wrong,here are the details for all states.

      PUBLIC HOLIDAY TRADING RESTRICTIONS
      EASTER AND ANZAC DAY 2009
      Australian Capital Territory
      There are no trading restrictions in the ACT.
      New South Wales
      All shops are required to close on Good Friday (10 April) and Easter Sunday
      (12 April) unless they are “small shops”; “exempt shops”; or are located in
      a exempted tourist area; or have been granted an exemption under s.10 of
      the Shop Trading Act 2008; or had an exemption under previous legislation.
      All shops except “small shops” and “exempt shops” must not open before
      1pm on Anzac Day (Saturday 25 April - there is no substitute public holiday)
      unless they have an exemption under s.10 of the Shop Trading Act 2008.
      Note: New trading hours legislation, the Shop Trading Act 2008, came into force
      in July 2008. ‘Small shops’ and ‘exempt shops’ are defined in the Act and a list of
      exempted tourist areas is available here.
      Northern Territory
      There are no trading restrictions in the Northern Territory.
      Queensland
      Queensland’s arrangements are particularly complex due to the large
      number of trading hour zones. Please refer to the attached schedule of
      trading hours in the various zones prepared by the National Retail
      Association.
      Non-exempt shops throughout Queensland are not permitted to trade on
      Anzac Day (Saturday 25 April - there is no substitute public holiday) or on
      Labour Day (Monday 4 May).
      Note: For a definition of non-exempt shop please refer to the Trading (Allowable
      Hours) Act 1990. As a general rule most supermarkets, discount department
      stores, department stores and most national retailers are non-exempt shops.
      South Australia
      Non-exempt shops in metropolitan Adelaide cannot trade on Good Friday
      (10 April), Easter Sunday (12 April) and Easter Monday (13 April) but can
      open on Easter Saturday (11 April) until 5pm. Non-exempt shops in country
      areas that are still proclaimed shopping districts (ie. that still regulate
      trading hours) cannot trade on Easter Saturday (11 April).
      Page 2
      - 2 -
      Non-exempt shops cannot open on Anzac Day (Saturday 25 April - there is
      no substitute public holiday).
      Note: For a definition of ‘exempt shop’ please refer to the Shop Trading Hours Act
      1977. As a general rule, however, most supermarkets, discount department stores,
      department stores and most other national retailers are not exempt shops.
      Tasmania
      Trading is prohibited on Good Friday (10 April) and before 12 noon on Anzac
      Day (Saturday 25 April - there is no substitute public holiday).
      Victoria
      Only ‘exempt shops’ can trade on Good Friday (10 April), Easter Sunday (12
      April) and before 1pm on Anzac Day (Saturday 25 April – there is no
      substitute public holiday).
      Note: For a definition of ‘exempt shops’ please refer to the Shop Trading Reform
      Act 1996. As a general rule most supermarkets, discount department stores,
      department stores and most national retailers are non-exempt shops. A number of
      municipalities outside Melbourne have been granted exemptions and can trade on
      Easter Sunday – see Business Victoria website for details.
      Western Australia
      Over Easter, general retail shops (including those in the Perth and
      Fremantle tourism precincts) are not permitted to open on Good Friday (10
      April) or Easter Monday (13 April). Easter Saturday (11 April) is a normal
      trading day. On Easter Sunday (12 April) only general retail shops in the
      Perth and Fremantle tourism precincts can open.
      On Anzac Day (Saturday 25 April), general retail shops (including those in
      the Perth and Fremantle tourism precincts) are not permitted to open. WA
      has also declared Monday 27 April as a substitute public holiday because
      Anzac Day falls on a Saturday. However, the WA Government has issued
      permits to allow shopping centres and general retail shops in metropolitan
      Perth to open on the Monday from 8am to 6pm.
      Note: The above arrangements do not apply north of the 26
      th
      parallel of south
      latitude where trading hours are unregulated or to those areas outside metropolitan
      Perth which may have special arrangements. ‘General retail shops’ are shops that
      do not fall within the definitions of ‘small retail shops’ and ‘special retail shops’ in
      the Retail Trading Hours Act 1987. As a general rule national chain supermarkets
      and most discount department stores, department stores and most national
      retailers are ‘general retail shops’.
