Night shopping

Do you prefer night shopping to be only Thursdays as before or every single weekdays night's. And why that; does it will affect our lifestyles in good or bad.

foodforthought says: I tried to avoid the rush hours, so I can take my time looking, there are more items in stock and also less of a line for checkout. But, I end up buying lots of snacks for the night when I get home, so that is not a good thing for my waistline. Reply

Nicole says: I think that more flexible shoppings hours are great. I would prefer to see the shops open later, if they had to open later in the morning to afford it I think that would be better. Say it the shops were open 10-9 that would be great. Who shops at 8 am in the morning. Reply

Tamara27 says: I agree! Even if it was only 3 days a week that they did so it id more accommodating to those who do work odd hours.
You would be surprised how many people do go and do grocery shopping at 6am due to shift work do it would be nice for shops to have some flexibility. Reply

Moongold says: I think people today, who often work long hours, greatly appreciate at least 4-5 days where we can shop at night. Especially helpful when you realise you don't have an ingredient for the meal you're planning! Only thing I hate about this in supermarkets is the fact that their managers make the staff load the shelves at the same time - loads of boxes blocking aisles, shelf packers blocking access to items - of course, all to save on the almighty dollar as usual. However, they need to realise this can cause accidents, especially for the elderly. I've caught my foot in trolleys or run into them or had to move heavy loads in them myself so that I can get to something I want. I think they should only pack the shelves after stores have closed.

am thinking of increased shopping hour(s) access for working parents and others.
Opportunities for eligible youngsters seeking casual evening employment
and for those needing and willing permanent employees........ possible overtime?
Not forgetting those of us who prefer shopping at these hours. Reply

Ann maria31418757 says: Night shopping should be every single weekday nights. There are many reasons to this including that this particular time fits the leniency of many working individuals, it may also be that one favours shopping at night rather than in the morning. Thereby enabling the personal preference of someone, allowing the individual to have a choice in the times they shop. This can have a great impact on people lives as it enables them to not think about the specific times they have to shop, freeing individuals of stress from one thing. Reply

That’s when I really appreciated Sydney’s shopping hours, if I want to make a cake at 10pm any night of the week and need eggs off I go to a supermarket, simples ! I’m told Perth has improved but I’m doubtful about going back ! Reply

EileenW1 says: For decades we managed without late night shopping. As a working Mum with little children I shopped Saturday mornings. I didn't break up for Christmas until Christmas Eve and then it was a crazy race to do all my food and last minute present shopping that evening before shops closed at 6pm. But we managed. Shop keepers and their staff had the nights off with their families, small businesses thrived as they did not have to compete with big stores able to pay penalty rates and overtime. yes, we do lead different life styles and working hours now but honestly who cannot organise themselves so they have a routine for shopping? Who needs stores to be open 24/7 and even on special days and public holidays? That is the reason why our small stores are closing, owners are going broke, we pay exorbitant prices to cover wages for overtime and these excessive opening hours. Reply

There are lots of people who work shift work/night work who this would benefit plus it would just be nice to have a bit more flexibility with shopping. Reply

Lucky123 says: I think late night shopping every night is a wonderful idea! It makes for a more vibrant city/suburb and can increase retail and hospitality industries by people eating out before or after they shop, going to the movies etc. Large cities like Hong Kong and others offer it, I think we should do. I love the idea! Reply
