>Late night shopping – #946

>

Not absolutely jam-packed, eh?

Shopping hours are fairly liberal after decades (centuries..?) of an appalling service ethic.

Want to buy something on Wednesday afternoon in the village?

No.

(And this can still happen to you in Gonso)

Want to go shopping on Saturday afternoon?

No.

These days, though, supermarkets open at 8am and generally close at 8pm, Monday through Saturday.

Big-box “Home Depot”-type places tend to open at 7am and some hypermarkets stay open until 10pm.

I have no idea why – just us and the slaves restocking the shelves at shortly after 9 the other evening.

(Popped in to buy Mrs jb some new cleaning cloths for her birthday)

And yes, the country IS closed on Sundays

  2. >You romantic devil. I hope you threw in some cleaning products as an extra little something for her. Here? you can shop 24/7 but don't expect any service for Pete's sake!V
