Other supermarket chains may also remain closed on Christmas Eve, similar to Lidl stores, with the Trade Staff Union already negotiating Christmas store closures with them.

Although Tesco, Aldi, Spar and Auchan have not yet revealed to ATV whether they, like Lidl, plan to declare 24 December a public holiday and remain closed, they are in discussions with other supermarket chains and the trade union Staff Trade Union.

hvg.hu also reported that Lidl has decided to close its stores on December 24. In a separate proposal, Jobbik urges that Christmas Eve be made a public holiday. On the other hand, the Entrepreneurship Association believes that administrative tightening will not be a good tool. writes atv.hu.

Meanwhile, a non-representative poll of hvg.hu readers after Lidl’s announcement on Sunday morning showed that nearly two-thirds of respondents, 65.3 percent, agreed that stores should close on 24 December.
