Get to the beach and enjoy the public holidays

Then, to complete the four weeks of public holidays, the Labor Day holiday will be on Monday, May 1.

While this news is sure to leave most people cheering at the thought of so many potential beach days and backyard barbeques in such a short time, for Tinana Hot Bread Shop owner Dan Moes, it could mean his business will run at a loss once a week for an entire month.

Mr Moes said between paying staff penalty rates and a drop in customers, public holidays were not good for his finances, but he keeps his doors open to keep his regular customers happy.

"We have such a good customer base," Mr Moes said.

"They still want their fresh hot bread so it's still important that we can offer that to them."
