Sunday Store Closing Hurts Latvian Trade

Authorities in all the towns and townships of Latvia are enforcing compulsory Sunday closing. This is a heavy economic blow to Jewish shopkeepers, who will have to keep closed two days in the week, Saturday and Sunday.

It is reported from Lithuania that a campaign has been started there, too, for enforcing compulsory Sunday closing, not only in the provincial towns, but also in the capital, where it is permitted at present to keep open on Sundays until five o’clock.
