Katowice Shopping

share

What little shopping opportunities there are to be found in Katowice are mostly located in the area immediately north of the train station. Like most of 21st-century Poland, many shops are given over to the sale of women's fashion, with more interesting independent enterprises in seriously short supply. In lieu of the small, communist-era malls around the Rynek, Katowice's best collection of shops under one roof is the extraordinary Silesia City Centre; if you can't find what you're looking for there, then you might have to leave PL to get it. That aside, we've made an effort through this section to focus on small local or national businesses you won't find wherever you're from.

Sunday Shopping Ban

Shops have traditionally had more limited hours on weekends, but since March 2018 new regulations that will eventually ban Sunday trading in Poland entirely have gone into effect. Phased in gradually, in 2018 trade has been allowed on only the first and last Sundays of each month, forcing shops to close on the intervening Sundays. Beginning in 2019, trade will only be allowed on the last Sunday of each month. There are only a few exemptions to the rule, namely pharmacies, gas stations, kiosks, bakeries, open-air markets and souvenir shops (oh thank god). Note that the Sunday hours we list for venues are the hours they keep only on those Sundays when trade is allowed. The following is a list of Sundays when shops are allowed to be open:

Oct. 7, 28
Nov. 4, 25
Dec. 2, 16, 23, 30
Jan. 27
Feb. 24
March 31
April 28
