Trade union says stores should close sooner in Hungary

The Trade Union of Retail Employees (KASZ) is recommending that stores should be open only until noon instead of 2 P.M. on 24 December.
KASZ said in an open letter on Friday that 24 December is a Monday and the weekend before that will be perfect to do the necessary shopping, while only those will venture to the stores on Monday that have forgotten to buy something for the holidays.

Under current regulations, stores may be open until 2 P.M. on 24 December, but the KASZ argues that they would not suffer major losses, while it would mean a lot for those working in commerce if they had these two extra hours before Christmas.
