T is for Thursday night shopping #AtoZChallenge — 4 Comments

  1. That’s interesting. Did the late night shopping continue after the war? I remember some late night shopping – until 6! – in major towns, but not our high street. And there was early closing day – which varied between towns, Tuesday, Wed, or Thurs was a halfday, to allow the workers their time off in the week for working on Saturdays – till about 1 pm!
    I don’t know what the shop hours were during wartime, though. For food, shops probably opened when they had something, then closed agai once they’d run out.

    • I grew up in a small town in Missouri and we had Thursday night shopping in the downtown when I was a child in the 1970s. Then Walmart came in and put all the downtown shops out of business, partly because they had evening hours all week.
