Subject: BS: Shopping ## An Olympic sport

In response to the UK government's stated intention to suspend Sunday trading limits for the period of the Olympics.
The Keep Sunday Special organisation has accused them of turning shopping into another Olympic sport.

The response amused me, and I agree with them too.

I love shopping but I don't actually buy much, just look and admire. Do you suppose all these Olympic shoppers will spend spend spend or just browse? Judging by the extremely expensive tourist souvenirs on offer in London when I was there last, maybe the traders down there are hoping to make a killing.

It is supposed to be temporary, but if isn't made permanent/instated within a fairly short time, I will be surprised.

we've had Sunday shopping for decades over this side of the pond & some folks certainly treat it as a sport! In Sales time I love to watch the shoppers grabbing stuff & carrying around multiple bags, so that might mean I'm one of the audience

For clarification: there is Sunday shopping in the UK, but there are restrictions, such as the permitted opening hours. It is those restrictions that are being removed.

And how many underpaid supermarket workers will be coerced into working the extra hours ?

Why stop there? Why not relax the laws on drug abuse and prostitution so that the "Olympic Family" can properly enjoy themselves while here?

"there is Sunday shopping in the UK, but there are restrictions, such as the permitted opening hours." And the restricted opening hours only apply to shops over a certain floor size and only in part of the UK. For instance the only real restriction in Scotland is that the staff in retail outlets can't be (or at least shouldn't be) coerced into working a Sunday.

A teacher at my wife's school was told she had a "shopping disorder" - I think this is becoming increasingly common.

When you've seen one shopping centre, you've seen a mall.

(You might have to say it out loud........)
