A public divided

Hey there, time traveller!

Fred Anderson, 42

"Considering most people work five days a week and both parents work, weekends are when most people are shopping."


James Remnant, 52

"I think people should have a day off. I never wanted Sunday hours in the first place. One day nobody works so you can get together with friends. I grew up with stores closed on Mondays. It'll be a generational divide."


Janet Lee, 23

"I come from out of town. I find it very inconvenient when hours end at 6. It's just more convenient. I think businesses benefit. It's win-win."


Andrew Beresford, 64

"It seems totally unnecessary to me. Based on what I've seen in other cities, they won't be busy. The workers will have to work more for a few customers."


Victoria Albl, 59

"There shouldn't be shopping hours on Sunday. There should be more emphasis on family time versus convenience for the consumers."


Melissa Royea-Morrison, 16

"Sundays are usually when people go, 'Oh, that last-minute thing.' Sunday is the beginning of the week; when I do what I have to get done."


Phil Schneider, 28

"I can get grocery shopping done Sunday morning instead of having to wait."


Shannon Dziadek, 27, Teulon

"It's good for me. Sometimes we come into the city and the stores are closed."


George Forzley, 72

"I think there is enough shopping. I think to hell with it. Maybe they should be closed Mondays. I think it's a joke. Nobody has a life. My wife is a consummate shopper; she needs a day of rest."


Pat Davidson, 53

"It won't affect me. I spend a lot but I hate shopping. I think everybody should take a rest. People have enough time to shop."


Corey Malo, 42, Used to own a clothing store in Osborne Village

"I think it's a good idea. When I owned my store I had a lot of Sunday business. It gives people something to do in the winter."
