In response to the portal’s questions, Żabka informed that from the beginning of February small shops will still operate on trade restricted days. Decisions on which exemptions they will benefit from are to be made individually.

Most of Żabka’s franchisees use the provision provided for entrepreneurs trading in person and on their own account. If a given facility meets the conditions for applying other exemptions, it will also use them – informed the network, quoted by the portal.

Ladybug only said that in principle, it strictly complies with the applicable provisions of law. On question about shopping Sundays she replied evasively – inviting customers for shopping on the next trading Sunday, which is January 30.
