I'm just wondering if the shops are open til late where you live and do you prefer to go shopping at this time?
Ours open til 8pm wednesday and Friday nights in the run up to xmas. In fact that's what I am going to do tomorrow night, just me and my husband. I want to get some stocking stuffer for my daughter, the question is 'what' thou, i havent a clue what to get her!!
Stores are also open late in Naples though I believe it's only Walmart that's open 24 hours. I do all my shopping during the day. At night, I just want to be home, doing Christmas stuff...besides my night vision is not that good for driving.
Here too the shops will be open till 8PM one or two nights next week and also on Sunday the 23rd shops will be open.
Usually Sunday everything is closed and during the week stores are open until 6 PM only. Grocery stores stay open until 8 PM and on Fridays till 9 PM. So on Saturdays it's always very crowded as that is pretty much the only day working people can get to the store.
I would love to have longer opening hours and especially Sundays would be convenient but the unions are very much against it and so it stays this way.
It is in giving that you receive the greatest gift !
