About Verkaufsoffener Sonntag
Verkaufsoffener Sonntag: On Sunday, when the shops were open, thousands of people flocked to the shops in Hamburg. The city center was full, said the managing director of the city management, Brigitte Engler.
There was a good mood. According to the information, the shops were also well frequented in other parts of the city, such as in Bergedorf.
Willingness to buy somewhat dampened
However, the desire to buy is dampened because people have to look at their money, Engler explained in an interview with NDR 90.3 . The reason for this is the rising cost of living.
Two more dates are set
In many Hamburg shopping streets and shopping centers there were campaigns on the topic of “inclusion and integration”. It was the second of four Verkaufsoffener Sonntag this year. Additional shopping Sundays are planned for September 25th and November 6th.
Masks are still compulsory in shops
In Hamburg, unlike in most other federal states, people have to continue to wear a mask when shopping. The Hanseatic city has been an official corona hotspot since Saturday and is therefore subject to stricter rules than most other federal states . According to the new containment regulation, the FFP2 mask requirement indoors – and thus also in retail – will continue until the end of April.
