That is my biggest problem with coffee shops
This is my biggest problem with all shops.
The business model is broken but instead of offering a service people want they are moaning about it.
In a market where a huge proportion of the customers work and shops can no longer rely on housewives doing the shopping while the husband work, in a world where the internet is open 24hrs and so are the supermarkets, its not sustainable to only open 9-5, Mon to Sat.
I was in Thailand last week and the difference is obvious, shops open from early for people to buy breakfast on the way to work, shops open into the evening for people to shop after work. Growing economy.
Shopkeeping is now a job that requires antisocial hours and shopkeepers need to realise this meet the markets requirments.
My LBS has started closing earlier in the evenings and not opening Sundays becuase the staff complained about long hours, I haven't been in since the change, not out of spite but because they are never open when I can go.
