If it opens until midnight will i still be greeted with "sorry about your wait" in a monosyllabic drone (even when i haven't waited) or some other odius Wallmart drivel.

For what its worth Serenity, i think you have put over many valid points, and without getting too involved in the forum discussion (i haven't got the time and most points have been covered)i personally don't see any requirement for stores in built up areas to open at these hours. Out of town centres can do this.

I would also like to see how Asda plan to manage this and the pressure they put on staff. Retail already has a pretty poor record in how they treat their staff (particularly their store managers) often being paid for a 40 hour week when more often or not working 60 hour week. My money is on more hours for managers with no extra reward (common practice in the retail sector).

Do we really need the extra hours, are there really lots of shift workers saying "thank god for that, we can now shop, up until now we have never managed"!!!!!

Jees, my parents managed to both work (dad on shifts, mum couldn't drive) bring up a family of six, with limited freezer options and shops that shut at six

Are these extra hours needed? Are they just a way of utilising the store which is already being lit and heated for night staff? I dont live in the houses backing on to the store but i can see how it would be disturbing.

Even if some of you think Serenity's points aren't strong enough, they are still valid and and personally i think they are very relevant

I can not see any real reason that this should happen, i do see many small reasons why it shouldn't
