LONDON (Reuters) - British retailer Marks & Spencer MKS.L is lobbying the UK government for store trading hours on Sundays to be extended in December to help make up for lost trade in November's COVID-19 lockdown, its boss said on Wednesday.
“We are lobbying quite hard with the rest of the industry for the extension and de-regulation of some Sunday hours, particularly as we get closer to Christmas,” Chief Executive Steve Rowe told reporters.
On Tuesday clothing retailer Primark ABF.L also called for December hours to be extended.
