A strange evolution: grocery stores and supermarkets are opening more and more around the clock where I live, whereas the old kiosks, service stations (like gas stations) that used to have the longest opening hours are actually reducing them


There's even an entire chain, R-kioski, in Finland who's entire proposition used to be that they are closer to you and have longer opening hours than the alternatives (at the cost of being more expensive of course). Nowadays they are neither: I have one corner shop and one supermarket within 1 km which are open around the clock, whereas my closest R-kioski location closes at 21. Even "normal" corner shops tend to be open until 22 or 23 here!
