Doors open on Sunday trading

THE doors will open this Sunday in a history-making event for Rockhampton.

It will be the first day of Sunday trading for the big centres after a six-month battle fuelled with anguish and praise from businesses and locals, which split the city.

Late last month the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission approved a National Retailers Association application for extended trading hours.

Earlier last year council voted to support seven-day trading. However, it later back-flipped and voted to have no opinion on the matter by taking a neutral stance.

Stockland Rockhampton, City Centre Plaza, Allenstown and Northside Plaza will open their doors for trade on Sunday with national retailers like Woolworths, Coles, Big W and Target trading from 9am to 6pm and specialty stores with various trading times.
