Are shops, markets etc open on Sundays?

I'll be leaving Fiji on a Sunday - my flight is at 2 p.m. I was just wondering if the shops etc will be open on a Sunday? If not what other activity would you suggest for my last morning in Fiji please?

Some shops will be open in Suva, but generally Sunday is a very respected day in Fiji and shops and markets are closed.

Even Suva is quite dead on a Sunday.

Thank you both. I know Fiji is a very religious country so I didn't really expect shops to be open. Maybe just a nice walk in the Garden of the Sleeping Giant will be the thing to do.

The main tourist shops and some supermarkets are open on Sunday mornings, so if you have some last minute shopping to do that would be okay although those same shops are at the airports departure lounge. The Garden of the Sleeping Giant is open until 12 midday on Sundays.
