If you come from a fast food nation or where stores are open 24hrs then you'll be in for shock when you arrive here. In MY town everything is open at 8:30am and closes at 1pm. To reopen again at 5pm and close at 8pm. On wednesday night everything is closed except the butcher. Forget about sundays, nothing is open. I believe that every town has different opening and closing times.In the larger cities you will find large supermarket chains open from 8am-8pm. But most smaller shops take a rest in the afternoon.Just be prepared if you are doing a drive and are on the cheap!!
