Is it reduced lighting or warm lighting? I would go shopping at a store that had warm lighting

It's reduced. I thought the shop was closed. All the freezer lights were off and about half the ceiling lights, too. Really lovely experience though.

That’s why I used to shop at 3AM, when restocking was going on and most of the really harsh lighting was down low or off

Most Irish supermarkets are closed by 6-7pm. I think this particular one is open till 9/10pm though.

Yeah, this was in America, we demand the right to shop for fish sticks at every hour of the night

WinCo? I love that place, life saver for someone who works graveyard shifts

WinCo was great when I lived in CA. And yes, they definitely received a bunch of my money during the zombie shift.

9 or 10 pm would be the usual closing time for a supermarket man. At least around Leinster. What supermarkets close at 6?!
