Praktiker to extend Saturday opening to counter Sunday closures

Praktiker store

Hungary's D.I.Y. chain Praktiker has extended opening hours on Saturdays in order to compensate for the anticipated traffic loss due to restrictions on Sunday opening hours that will come into effect from March 15, the retailer said yesterday.

The retailer has altogether 19 stores in Hungary that are scheduled to be open from 7.30 a.m. to 8.30 p.m. from March 15. Currently, the stores are open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. on weekdays, from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. in the evening on Saturdays, and from 9 a.m. in the morning until 6 p.m. on Sundays. Most big retailers will be required to shut their doors on Sunday from mid-March due to legislation approved late last year.
