Butcher shop changes

South Burnett Times - - NEWS -

BUTCHER shops and hard­ware stores will be able to open longer hours fol­low­ing the Queens­land Gov­ern­ment re­view into trad­ing hours. Pre­mier An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk said the cur­rent ar­range­ments where some butch­ers could not open on Sun­days, when a lot of peo­ple en­joyed a bar­be­cue, did not pass the com­mon sense test. “All butcher shops and bulk meat re­tail­ers should have their trad­ing ar­range­ments aligned with shops sell­ing fish, fruit and veg­eta­bles and take­away food,” she said. “The re­view’s find­ings made it very clear that the patch­work of over reg­u­la­tion of trad­ing hours no longer suits our mod­ern life­styles.” The pro­posal is for these stores to be able to open from 6am Sun­days.
