RINCON DE LA VICTORIA celebrates a significant milestone as it secures an indefinite declaration as a Tourist Influx Zone (ZGAT) for commercial activities. The Andalucian Regional Government’s General Directorate of Commerce has not only renewed this recognition but also expanded its scope.

Flexible Operating Hours Boost Local Businesses

This designation means that local businesses can now enjoy flexible operating hours during crucial periods, including the period from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday and the entire summer season.

According to councillor Lola Ramos, this extended recognition brings several key benefits. Previously granted for four years, the indefinite status ensures long-term advantages, fostering economic growth and job creation. Mayor Francisco Salado emphasises the positive impact on tourism and local businesses, making Rincón de la Victoria an even more attractive destination for shoppers.

Freedom for Local Businesses: Boosting Economy and Employment

The decision takes into account the area’s cultural, historical, and sports significance, as well as its proximity to the capital and its appeal to national and international visitors. With local establishments now having the freedom to set their own opening hours, this development is expected to boost the economy, enhance consumer experiences, and contribute to increased employment opportunities in the region.
