A French Concession
As I walked in our local DIY BricoMarche store yesterday, something caught my eye. Hardly a day goes by (except Sunday of course) that one of us doesn't pay a visit here. We've finally trained ourselves not to be sitting in the parking lot at 7:30 in the morning or expect to find the doors open at lunch time.
But I never noticed that there is ever so slight a shift in the hours of operation on samedi (Saturday). While the store still closes at 19:00 (7 pm), it opens 15 minutes later, at 9:15 am---a small change. The major difference, and one that I imagine the employees particularly think is foolish, is shortening the lunch hour closure by 15 minutes to a mere 2 hours! What is this world coming to?
