Let shop owners decide

After reading the article ``British Bid to Permit Sunday Shopping Draws Cheers, Jeers,'' Dec. 6, I think that shops should have the ability to open on Sundays if they so desire.

When the law which restricts shopping on Sundays was established, people who had no religious beliefs were not considered at all. They have a right to shop on Sundays if they wish. By abolishing this law, British leaders are not implying that stores must open on Sundays. If store owners wish not to open they don't have to. It should be left up to the shop owner to decide, not the government. Brandi Campbell, Fayetteville, Ga., Counterpane School
