I think a few countries in Europe may be this way, but I do not know about all. France is a interesting country with some pretty deep-rooted traditions, so this does not necessarily surprise me. I think perhaps to them, to be open each day for selling, would be a nod too far towards the consumer-driven USA way of living (i.e. shopping as "entertainment" instead of for a specific need). And in that respect I don't actually disagree with non-shopping days, not one bit. Sundays for us become movie days, or walking days, or hang around and bake stuff with chocolate in it days. A lot..but not all..of the shops in Scotland were also shut on Sundays. The general rule tended to be (in my experience) the smaller the store, the more likely it would not be open, with the big stores open like 12-5ish. shannydoots 7 years Total guess. Oops! AleWebster 7 years In Argentina the stores located in shopping centers are open on Sundays. mondaymoos 7 years THAT was a complete guess. nat1 7 years I´m argentinian, and we also close our boutiques and dept stores on Sundays! I didn´t know they did so on France... You learn something every day :) Michaelrcks 7 years I'm good.
