Do shops close early today? (Please reply in next 17 minutes)

Monday's a day off; now after 10 years I can't remember if shops close early on the Friday before such a day.

Awwww you poor thing. Where did they go and why did poor Mud get ditched?

AFAIK, business as usual here for Friday. Get all your shopping done before 4pm tomorrow and you'd be fine. Tomorrow being Saturday!

Re: Do shops close early today? (Please reply in next 17 minutes)

So to answer Mud's question that he's not sure how to ask...

The shops are open normally on Friday AND Saturday (in the majority of cases) It's only Monday that they are closed for the full day.

(Mud - do a quick check that you are fully dressed and have your wallet before embarking on your shopping trip... )
