    I'm confused by this everything shuts at 5pm in the UK thing. Perhaps Hull is unique? I left there two years ago. The local shop shut at 9pm. Within 5 mnutes drive were two that shut at 10pm. Then of course there were three 24 hour supermarkets within 15 minutes drive. The shopping centre shut at 8pm I think.

    That's to maximise the window of opportunity for shoplifters and armed robberies

    My Hometown is Bristol and Shops such as O2 and EE etc closing at 5pm is just plain weird to me.

    On the flip side it's nearly impossible to buy anything before 10am in HKG.
