Sunday Shopping

In Prince Edward Island, Sunday shopping at most retail stores is permitted after 12 p.m. year round but stores must remain closed on designated retail holidays such as Christmas Day, Boxing Day, Good Friday, Islander Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day, Remembrance Day and New Year's Day.

The Retail Business Holidays Act defines the type of retail business that may open for Sunday shopping year round, including but not limited to, convenience stores, restaurants, drug stores, bakeries and video stores.
