Tarnów can hardly be considered a shoppers' paradise, but it does boast two modern shopping malls just to its southwest and northeast where locals flock on weekends. In the centre, Tarnovians do their haggling at 'the Burek' - an open-air market covering several blocks just off the Rynek.
To save time, hassle and luggage space do your shopping online in the Poland IYP Shop.
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. Throughout 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:
March 31 | April 14, 28 | May 26 | June 30 | July 28
Aug. 25 | Sept. 29 | Oct. 27 | Nov. 24 | Dec. 15, 22, 29
