I’ve noticed something like that too, and the obvious reason, to me, was that they have fewer checkers at that hour.

Just Me June 11, 2005 My mom worked nights as an RN, she would often do her grocery shopping in the wee hours of the morning at the 24 hour grocery and later Walmart, when it opened 24 hours, because it wasn’t as crowded. Not sure how well the produce aisle was stocked though. Zsa Zsa June 11, 2005 What is everyone doing out so late? OR… up so early anyway?… Hmmmmmmm! Just wondering!
