The three largest retailers were on Friday summoned by Minister for Culture, Linda Hofstad Helleland . Rema 1000 will bring a recent survey  to the meeting that they claim shows that 80 shops belonging to Norway Group still violate the opening law.

We had a look at the Norway Group and found over 80 stores with unlawful opening conditions on Sundays. This is especially concerning retail areas that are too large , especially in Joker shops, and this is after the Norway Group said  they would adhere to the law. So the reality is very different from the spirit of the law. We are not prepared put up with this anymore, said Communications Director Mette Fossum Beyer in Rema 1000 NTB before the meeting.
It is in relation to the law of Sunday  opening hours that the Minister of Culture hastily summoned a meeting with Rema 1000, Coop and Norway Group.
