Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 21, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueiday, January 21, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 1? Longer shopping hours favored TABER (HNS) A solution to the long standing shopping hours controversy is to be recommended to town council by the Taber Chamber of Commerce, following a chamber conducted survey of local businesses. Bylaw amendments being proposed include the exten- sion of shopping hours from 1 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays, and from 6 to 9 p.m. Fridays clos- ing time. In addition, it is being recommended that retail stores be allowed to remain open to 9 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays preceding Christmas, by bylaw amendment. Survey forms were mailed to retail merchants governed by the hours of closing bylaw, and to other businesses whose trade might be affected by the retail shopping hours. Approximately half of te forms were completed and returned 26 from retailers and 40 from others. An assessment of the replies revealed the following data: Do you prefer a control bylaw? Retail merchants voted 92 per cent yes; all returns 79 per cent yes. Are you satisfied with pre- store hours? Retail merchants, 64 per cent no, all 57 per cent no.

Retail merchants, 100 per cent yes; all returns 98 per cent yes. How long before Christmas should holiday shopping hours begin? Retail merchants, 50 per cent, four weeks; 30 per cent, three weeks; all returns, 34 per cent four weeks; 24 per cent, three weeks; 34 per cent two weeks. Reporting to the chamber's board of directors meeting, business affairs committee chairman Murray Johnson observed that the retail merchants are not "split down the middle" as has been previously reported. Failure of the Taber Businessmen's Association to come up with a firm recommendation to council prompted the "more indepen- dent and objective" survey taken by the chamber.
