City of Windsor Considers Change to Retail Business Holidays By-Law
The City of Windsor is considering changing the current Retail Business Holidays by-law and would like to hear from you.
The current by-law requires certain retail businesses (clothing stores, department stores, electronics retailers, etc.) to be closed on nine statutory holidays unless they have applied for and received an exemption to be open from the City. As exemptions have generally been granted in the past, the City is considering dropping the need for an exemption and simply allowing stores to be open.
Stores would still have the option to be closed on Statutory Holidays if they so choose.
Please take the city’s short survey to help us gauge public sentiment on this topic:
This survey will remain open until 4:30pm on February 1, 2019.
