Default New Wal-Mart Hours

Wal-Mart apparently announced new store hours. 25 stores across Canada will now be open 24 hours. In Alberta, 1 in Edmonton and 4 in Calgary. This is great news for my rather screwed up sense of day and night!

Where do you live? Any of the ones I'm aware of (near where I live) are only open until 22:00. A while ago they were open around the clock, but when they finally forced K-Mart out of the picture they cut the hours way back. Canada doesn't seem to have as many 24 hour businesses as the US.

I'm from minnesota. the nearest one to me is not open 24 hours, but most of the "super walmarts" are.

our new superwalmart is open 24 hrs, a first for our town. but they say it won't stay open 24 hrs after the newness has worn off it is nice having it open 24 hrs though, I've had the need to visit during odd hours

I shop at Wallys after midnight often. I'm always amazed at how many others do too and how many people lock their keys in the car.... 3 times last year but I was only able to get two going again.
