Twist: What Sundays are stores and supermarkets open?

The cancellation of temporary sales for November cancels the planning that was in place for stores open on Sunday, November 6th.

The unrest on Sunday when stores and supermarkets open was caused by the cancellation of temporary discounts.


It is reported that so far the stores will open their doors on the first Sunday of mid-winter sales, that is, November 6. However, with the abolition of the intermediate discount institution, the stores will not work.

With Article 6 of the Ministry of Development and Investment bill, intermediate discounts were abolished. As noted, the following are defined as discount periods, during which it is allowed to sell goods or provide services at reduced prices:


Winter Sale From the second Monday of January until the end of February and

Summer Sale From the second Monday of July until the end of August

It should be noted that the first intermediate sales were created by law in 2013 and stipulated that sales should take place in the first ten days of May and the first ten days of November. However, it was then increased to 15 days.


So, until the end of 2022, there are still two days of open shops, that is:

On the penultimate Sunday before Christmas, December 11, 2022
