- shopping hours are different in winter and summer.
In the winter period from 1 November to 31 March the shops open at 09.00 and close, in accordance with the law, at 19.00, except on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays when they close at 14.00, 20.00 and 15.00, respectively. Sunday is not a working day.
In the summer period from 1 April to 31 October, the shops open at 09.00 and close, in accordance with the law, at 08.30, except on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays when they close at 14.00, 21.30 and 17.00, respectively. From 15 June to 31 August, the afternoon rest measure applies and the shops are closed between 14.00 and 17.00. Sunday is not a working day.
It should be noted that although the legislation provides for the hours of business stated above, the smaller shops
generally do not keep to the exact closing times and close about an hour earlier than required by law.
All urban areas have kiosks for shopping, which are open for longer than other Cyprus shops or even for 24 hours a day. A large number of bakeries stay open until 23.00. The kiosks sell cigarettes, soft drinks, mineral water and magazines and newspapers, etc., and the bakeries sell bread, other bakery products and milk and dairy products, etc.
Cyprus shops - The official public holidays for shops are: 1 January, 25 March, 1 April, Easter Monday, 1 May, 1 October, 28 October, 25 December and 26 December.
The Minister for Labour and Social Insurance designates tourism areas, and in those areas the Cyprus shops adhere to the tourism system of opening hours which allows for longer opening all through the week and for Sunday opening.
In the Christmas period, which begins on 12 December and ends on 30 December, and the Easter period, which begins 10 days before Easter Sunday, all stores are open for longer.

Marilyn's Bookswap: Panteli Michaniou St; ph:99416923
Unfortunately, there is no public library in Paphos. This causes a fair amount of distress to those of us who have been used to a weekly visit to the library. However, we are pleased to say there is a fabulous source of reading material here and you get 40% back on returns towards your next selection. This little bookswap is also a mine of information and is run by very helpful expats.
