heh, you're talking about the 24 hour A&P. Trust me...they make profit . I've been there at least 4 times past 12am and given them lots of money! And it was never empty when I went.

Alot of these stores have to keep people in the store 24 hours a day anyway, just most of them use the night to restock and clean. Why not let those restocking handle customers as well, you have to pay them anyway.

SUx for you Amy. All our stuff is palletized already we just pull it out to the aisle, spot it, then throw it. 1400 is about an average size for our store as well. We're #1 in our District for volume.

Where I live, all of these places stay open 24 hours.....

Walmart Supercenter
Super Kmart
Mcdonalds
Waffle House
Tons of gas stations of course

I have learned not to go to Walmart Supercenter until around 1 AM, because if you don't where I live, you will be camping out in a long line there. Plus it is easy shopping at 1 AM. The stockers do get in the way at that time, but I would rather stockers get in my way than 15 mothers and families going crazy on every aisle.

LOL, I wish customers felt that way when they're in our place. That's why I love working when the stores closed. Its so much quicker to just spot stuff and work it then have to keep yourself organized
