Super U closes on Sunday afternoonsPOSTED: 09/7/16 10:11 AM
MARIGOT St.Martin (soualigapost.com) – Since its opening, the Super U supermarket located in Howell Center was open on Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and also after 4 p.m. A practice which certainly satisfied regular customers, but it wasn’t in conformity with French legislation.
The law requires that this kind of business closes on Sundays at 1 p.m. unless an exception is granted. This is why the management was asked to review the work hours of its employees and issue the following message: "For administrative reasons, we are no longer able to open on Sunday afternoon until further notice."So, the store closes its doors at 12:45.
Now, it remains to be seen if the island’s other supermarkets will follow their example. Businesses without employees are allowed to be open on Sunday.
