Wal Mart has announced it is not going to be open 24 hours anymore for the foreseeable future.
Walmart cuts hours at 24-hour stores and other locations nationwide starting Sunday due to coronavirus
Walmart is cutting store hours starting Sunday at its locations across the U.S. due to COVID-19.
Stores normally open 24 hours will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. until further notice, the company said late Saturday. Other stores, which are typically open until midnight, will also have reduced hours.
“This will help ensure associates are able to stock the products our customers are looking for and to perform cleaning and sanitizing,” Dacona Smith, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Walmart U.S., wrote in a blog post.
However, not all of Walmart’s 5,000-plus stores are affected by the change. Stores that operate under more reduced hours will keep their current hours of operation, Walmart said. Some stores, for example, regularly close at 10 p.m. or open at 7 a.m.
Wally World has been the one place that was open after I get off work at 1 A.M. and there have been several times that I needed to swing by and grab something. It was especially handy as there is one almost exactly one mile from me as the Crow flies that I could run up to in the middle of the night on weekends when I was out screwing around on some project out in the garage. You would be surprised at how many people would be in there shopping at 2:30 in the morning.
People like me who work nights, there are more of us than you might think.
Ah well, it is what it is.
I just need to remember this so I don’t hop in my rig at 2 in the morning to run up and get something.
