In a new survey 63 percent of the respondents say that they do not want the laws to be changed to allow more stores to stay open  on Sundays. But  it is different in practice,  food retailers say.

A survey made by Norstat for the newspaper Vårt Land reveals that 63 percent believe that the the rules for opening hours on Sundays should stay the way they are, or be tightened.
41 percent think the rules should remain the way they are today, while 22 percent believe it should be further tightened.
19 percent of the respondents said  said there should not be any limits on the size of the stores, while 17 percent believe there should not be any restriction on opening hours on Sundays.
The grocery chains points out that there is a large difference between what people say and what they actually do.
– Regardless of what people say in surveys, there has been an increase in the number of purchases made on Sunday. It is obvious that people want to shop on Sundays,  Jan Frode Johansen, CEO of Rema Franchise, says.
Both Bunnpris and Joker, who report good sales figures for Sundays, agrees with him.  Researcher Randi Lavik by National Institute for Consumer Research also thinks he makes a good point.
