BREAKING COVID-19: SA Gives Supermarkets 24 Hour Trading Option

Launching from Saturday, the new regulations will be in place for 30 days.

This morning South Australian Premier Steven Marshall announced, via his Facebook page, that SA supermarkets are being given the option of 24-hour weekday trading, plus extended trading hours on weekends, to alleviate the pressures of Coronavirus.

He says “This is a first for South Australia, and demonstrates our commitment to support consumers and businesses and give them greater CHOICE to operate during these unprecedented times.”

Launching from Saturday, the new regulations will be in place for 30 days (though it may be longer depending on what happens over the coming weeks).

Please note – this is optional, and the decision on trading hours is up to the supermarkets.

The deregulation comes as Coles and Woolworths both announced they’d be closing earlier, at 8pm to cope with the restocking and cleaning of stores.
