German Blue Laws

CK - Washington.   Blue Laws at the state level in Germany evaporate. Long gone are the days when the Sunday dress came with strict closing hours and all you could buy between Saturday noon and Monday morning was Kaffee und Kuchen or a draft beer.

Effective next Tuesday, all of Northrhine-Westphalia will be able to shop till they drop--around the clock, §4 Gesetz zur Regelung der Ladenöffnungszeiten, Statute to Regulate Shop Opening Times, of November 16, 2006.

Update: Berlin is ready, too, Berlin Blawg reports.
