All shops in Jersey will be closed on Christmas Day, so plan ahead is the advice.
This means you must be organised in time for Christmas as even the smaller shops which open for a few hours normally, are not allowed.
If your shop is bigger than 700 sq metres, you can't open on Boxing Day either.
The Comité des Connétables has issued this reminder of the change in law to all shop owners.
Chairman of the Comité des Connétables, John Gallichan, said, "The law applies to all shops and to businesses providing services. A permit cannot be granted to enable shops and businesses to open on Christmas Day."
