The A-Z of Retail: Z is for Żabka
ESM: European Supermarket Magazine is proud to unveil 'The A-Z of Retail', a new subscriber-only series that offers a deep analysis of the retailers, suppliers and individuals making the news each week. Today: Z is for Żabka.
With the introduction of the Polish government's ban on Sunday trading, the country's shoppers have been left somewhat out in the open, unsure which retailers they can still turn to on this mandated ‘day of rest’.
The last two Sundays have already seen the new legislation in effect, and by 2020, the trading ban is expected to be extended from the current two Sundays a month, to almost the whole year.
The legislation is mainly targeted at big international retailers, which dominate. the fiercely-competitive Polish retail market, but its implementation has left many homegrown names in a legal grey area.
