Personally i feel its a breath of fresh air not having Kouts or Premier Jay filling every news reel with their latest whinge/ fight/ reannouncement.

Its a shame we cant get this from all forms of Government more often.
So out of Marshalls 100 day plan, what has he achieved so far?
Can you fill us in, because he isn't telling us much.
In all honesty i have no idea, and dont really care till day 100.

So the unions have started the fight against deregulation.

Disappointing they are aiming for the moron buyer angle arguing we will all just flock straight to Woolies or Coles.

Be interesting to know which stores have signed up with the unions, I'll happily avoid their stores now and in the future. Ive already put up with higher prices to support local, but I'll stop with these guys.

Ha. So Barossa Fine Foods anti shop deregulation because they don't want more competition.

Btw run by the dad of Stephan Knoll which is hilarious.

Thats one brand off the purchasing list.

Didn't pass the upper house so they are just allowing most stores to trade on Public Holidays in the Adelaide basin from 9-5pm. As this doesn't require a law change just approval from the Minister. Stores on Boxing Day were open from 9am-5pm in the Adelaide suburbs for the first time. The rest of the state is pretty much deregulated.
I guess the SA Government will allow stores to open over Easter and other Public Holidays except Christmas Day, Good Friday and until noon Anzac Day.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-26/ ... s/10668440
Suburban Adelaide stores have opened their doors for Boxing Day sales for the first time this morning.

Key points:

SA Government granted a special exemption to allow stores to open for Boxing Day in Adelaide's suburbs

Retailers expecting 3.7 per cent boost in sales

Move opposed by unions and independent retailers

And in the city, sales have started at 9:00am for the first time instead of the usual 11:00am on public holidays.
The State Government granted a special exemption in November for shops throughout the suburbs despite Parliament blocking its attempt to deregulate trading hours as the Liberal Party promised in the March state election

Virginia Nursery was closed on Boxing Day for the first time in many years. SA owned stores can't afford to trade on these days, this opening on public holidays benefits no one but Coles and Woolworths.

I was just trying to find a Significant SA owned business that opened on Boxing Day.
When I was checking through Westfield store directories I could not find any significant non food based stores that were SA owned.
Things that came to mind that are SA owned were Virginia Nursery that I know has previously opened boxing days but starting this year it is not.
Radio Rentals on Main North Road was also closed.

All I can see is that this first go at deregulation caused local businesses to close their doors and to lose sales to the larger non local companies.
This boxing day test is a text book example of the problem with deregulating shop trading hours, it benefits those with the deepest pockets only.

I’m surprised Radio Rentals is even still around.
