UMTALI STORES TO CLOSE ON SATURDAYS
THE Umtali Chamber of Commerce met yesterday evening to discuss among other items, the closing of all stores in Umtali on Saturday mornings.
At a previous meeting held earlier this month, a letter was sent to the Town Clerk asking if the Umtali Municipal Council would forward an official proposal to the Government that stores in Umtali be closed all day on Saturdays. The Council replied that they were read to forward this proposal officially.
Mr. A. C. Soffe explained at the meeting that it would be in the interest of merchants as well as the public if they closed their stores on Saturdays.
