Shopping malls can reduce opening hours

The Ministry of Industry and Trade received a proposal to legally reduce the opening hours of non-food stores, including clothing and footwear. The letter describing the initiative was sent to the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation by the head of the second largest Russian shoe chain Zenden and member of the Board of the National Association of Chain Trading (NAST) Andrey Pavlov.

Today, shopping malls and network retailer points in Russia, as a rule, work from 10 to 22-23 hours, and the authors of the initiative to reduce working hours suggest setting a schedule for shopping centers from 11 to 21 hours.

During an interview with Shoes Report, Zenden Group President and Member of the Board of NAST Andrey Pavlov spoke about the desire to take the initiative to reduce the working hours of shopping centers in July: “In Germany, shoe stores work from 11 to 18.30, and during this time people manage to buy shoes . Why in Russia shoe work from 10 in the morning to 22 hours? If we reduce the store’s work by two hours, a million workers will immediately appear in the economy. But we do not have unemployment! ”

From the point of view of the entrepreneur, the reduction of the working day in retail should be fixed by law. Because without the introduction of rules that are common to all, individual players will gain nothing by changing the schedule of their stores.

“If I reduce the hours of work on my network and my competitors do not, I will lose customers, and therefore, my business will not feel any economic benefit from such a move. In addition, stores often operate inside shopping centers, which have their own timetable and apply to all tenants, ”Pavlov said.
