When would you like to shop (poll)

Hi EFers

With the current discussion Shopping until 20:00 In All CH? going on, I thought, why not create a poll?

Happy voting.

I Voted on 5 items & all show as 1 vote 100%, so it's a little misleading.

I suppose after a couple others have voted, things might change. Wait and see.

Same here, happy with current hours and the option of goong to the train station in case of emergencies. If anything, one night a week with later opening hours (like Thursdays until 21.00) would be practical.

Otherwise, Internet with delivery at the door/Post Office suits me.

Since none of these options are in the poll, I guess I'm not in the target group.

Re: When would you like to shop (poll)

I'm not in favour of longer hours. In fact, I'd be happy with much shorter hours.

18:00-20:00 Mon-Fri
11:00-18:00 Sat-Sun

would be fine, and is more or less in line with current regulations - apart from Sunday, I guess. Opening before 11 on a weekend is a complete waste of resources and nobody wants it*

When will you be implementing the changes?




*That's the way it works, right? I don't want it, so nobody does? And if they do, they're wrong?

Strangely, my local shops are full of Swiss housewives between 8 and 10 AM Monday to Saturday.

It looks like most of you are all p****ng into the wind, as you can't vote!

Ok. I'll allow a couple of hours in the morning for the yummy-mummies, old-folk and the late night ravers.

Hey! I voted on the poll. Are you telling me it was for nothing?

Me too. I'm perfectly happy with things the way they are.

We have late night until 9pm on Thursdays and 8am to 7pm during the week and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.

The only option that fitted me on that poll was 'other'.
