According to ED, Eindhoven daily newspaper, four Eindhoven-based supermarkets, received a warning for continuing to open their doors to the public, much too early, on Sundays.
Supermarkets are allowed to open on Sundays at 12:00 hrs; however, many shops ignore this law and open their doors to the public two hours earlier.
The municipality had already warned that inspections will be held, since apparently, sixteen supermarkets had opened their doors to the public much too early on Sundays. During actual inspections, it seemed that four supermarkets were continuing to open their doors to the public too early on Sundays.
During an inspection, last week Sunday, there were five supermarkets disobeying the law. The first offense results in a warning. Further offenses might result in fines.
