Sunday trading in Perth is a success, with more than 80 per cent of shops choosing to open and an average of 20,000 shoppers at every major shopping centre.
Commerce Minister Simon O'Brien said although Sunday trading had been operating for only three months, it was clear that West Australians had embraced it.
"Hour for hour, Sunday has become the busiest shopping day of the week," Mr O'Brien said.
Figures collated by the Shopping Centre Council of Australia indicate the increase in customer visits has been stronger in Perth than in Brisbane and Adelaide when Sunday trading was introduced.
"Importantly, this means jobs for West Australians," Mr O'Brien said.
It was estimated that 1000 casual jobs were created under the introduction of Sunday trading, he said.
