Shop opening times on Jermin Street and surrounding area

Isn't it much nicer when shops close at 6pm? Or, as in Benson& Clegg's case, at 5?

No, I work for a living.
And since I am a Doc, it makes a difference wether or not I'm there in front of the patient.
So I like late hours and appreciate the vendors who try to accommodate late hours.

I don't mind shops open late, not that I shop after work. Though I might pick up something like purchased trousers that have been hemmed late in the week. I tend to go clothes shopping Saturdays or Friday afternoons, I find that far more civilised for some reason. I don't like shops being open on Sundays.

I'm like you, Goodyear welt. I don't shop Sundays either. I do like the late night shopping during the week when it's available though.

Shopping on Sundays is a no-go.

I think it wouldn't hurt if shop opening hours would be cut back. Seriously, would you buy something substantial at 9pm?

It can be nice, especially as the days get shorter in winter... Shopping in warm shops as it gets dark outside...

I believe people should be with their families after 7pm, and that also goes for the people working in shops.

Thats why I never shopped on a Sunday Bees when I was living in the UK. Young families should have time together on Sundays. Sunday trading isn't allowed here in Norway apart from December, which I hope won't change.  It wouldn't hurt to stop Sunday trading but I suspect theres some EU directive that would make that unlawful.
