Is today a trading Sunday? - No ads

Are you wondering if you can shop at your favorite shopping mall today? Many people ask themselves this question, especially on days off from work, when we have more time for shopping.

In Poland, there is a trading ban on most Sundays, but there are some exceptions. To find out if today is a trading Sunday, just check the current trading Sunday calendar.

In 2024, commercial Sundays will fall on only a few selected days of the year. It is therefore worth staying up to date and planning your purchases in advance.

Most often, shopping Sundays occur before Christmas and Easter, as well as on selected Sundays in other months. The current calendar of trading Sundays can be found later in this article.
