Store Locator Open Hours

The store’s opening and closing hours are shown in the store locator’s front end and reflect the store’s business hours. In many cases, a store operates with the same timing for the whole week. However, some businesses have varied working hours. For example, a store might be closed for an hour or two on weekends. In this case, the store will need to have non-regular working hours displayed on the store info box.

Multiple Time Slots Each Day #

Users can easily add multiple time slots on certain working days by clicking on the “+” sign to add a new slot. Once the new slot is created, the appropriate date can be added and the store’s timing will be updated.
