Council votes in favour of extended trading hours
Council have endorsed the continuation of extended general retail trading hours in Geraldton.
After what Council agreed was a“community decision”, the City will now seek approval from Minister for Commerce William Johnston, to align retail hours with Metropolitan Perth on an ongoing basis.
A 12-month trial of extended general retail trading hours was officially introduced in October last year and a comprehensive review was undertaken in the form of two independent surveys on community views and on impact and views of the business community.
Survey reports confirmed 63% of community respondents were in support of continuing extended trading hours.
