Warsaw Shopping


Paris, London or New York it ain't, but hard-core shoppers can still find plenty to spend their well-earned lolly on. Warsaw is seeing true growth in the array of shops available and the number of big-name labels that are opening storefronts. Whether it’s western-style malls, designer boutiques, dusty family stores or antique markets, a day spent shopping can result in both bargains and treasures.

Sunday Shopping Ban

Shops have traditionally had more limited hours on weekends, but note that since March 2018 a new law has gone into effect that will eventually ban Sunday trading in Poland entirely. To be phased in gradually over the next two years, the law will initially allow normal trading days on the first and last Sundays of each month, while forcing shops to close on the intervening Sundays. There are only a few exemptions to the rule, namely pharmacies, gas stations, kiosks, bakeries, open-air markets and souvenir shops (oh thank god). The Sunday hours we list for venues are the hours they keep on those Sunday when trade is allowed. Sundays when the shopping ban will be enforced are the following:
March 11, 18
April 01 (Easter), 08, 15, 22
May 13, 20
June 10, 17
July 08, 15, 22
August 12, 19
