Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In many European countries there are strong regulations regarding, say, opening businesses on public holidays, how many weeks a year you can have a "sale", and the like. The regulations this [patently ignorant] shopkeeper is whining about are similar to (just to list the ones I can be sure about) Spanish and Italian regulations.
