In many nations more and more shops are open for long hours. Is this a positive or negative development for the shoppers and local community.

In various countries,
increasing number

an increasing number
of stores are now opening for longer hours than before. In my opinion,
this
is a welcoming trend as buyers will shop at a

cost while the immediate community will grow economically. There are countless reasons why shops
are opened
Suggestion
open
for longer hours.
Firstly
, it gives the consumers the opportunity to purchase goods at an affordable price.
This
is because, lots of malls are accessible at every point in
time so
Accept comma addition
time, so
there would be no need for sellers to hike the price of their products which they often do when there is no competing store around.
Secondly
,
this
development will be convenient for working class shoppers as some people actually spend a lot of hours in their offices.
However
, with many malls available during their closing hour, they will still do their shopping freely.
Furthermore
,
local community
Suggestion
local communities
would be able to improve their income. Because of the rising demand of goods from costumers, shop owners are now making more sales all year round.
For example
, it was reported in AIT news
last
year that the economic growth in Enugu State in Nigeria rose by 15%.
This
was attributed to the fact that shopping were made for almost 18 hours daily.
As a result
, local sellers can now boast of a reasonable amount of money in their account. In conclusion, opening malls for longer hours in many nations not only give the shoppers a chance yo shop at their convenient time and at a low cost but
also
improve the economy of the local community.
Therefore
, it is imperative that other countries adopt
this
development in order to enjoy the benefits associated with it as well.
