Re: Christmas shopping hours

I went to Music Hug in Zurich yesterday. I was there 'early' - 09.30. Closed. Open at ten. Bought something else.

Re: Christmas shopping hours

Christmas shopping hours ended one hour before I anticipated it - the moment I wanted to enter the shop: "Sorry, we're closing."

Yeah, but I don't really work - I volunteer my services in return for a small donation to my beer and gadget fund.
I was really finished at 10.00 this morning after one and a half hours, and wrote my first reply as I was walking through the woods with the dog.
