Good Friday 2018: What’s open and closed this Easter long weekend

GOOD Friday: You’re probably going to be in a post Easter egg chocolate coma. But what happens if you run out of supplies?

Apart from Boxing Day, Good Friday is the most restricted trading day of the year in NSW and both Good Friday and Easter Monday are national public holidays.

Good Friday is a restricted shop trading day in NSW under the Retail Trading Act of 2008 and that means most major stores will be closed, including Coles, Woolworths, ALDI, Liquorland and Dan Murphy’s.

So what’s open?

Liquor shops:

Want a refreshing ale or glass of wine with your Easter eggs or traditional Easter seafood feast? Better stock up early because it’s illegal to sell takeaway alcohol on Good Friday.
