At this week’s meeting, the Pioneers decide on official opening hours for the store. They will be open from 4pm – 9pm on Mondays; closed on Tuesdays; open from 7pm – 9pm on Wednesdays; 8pm – 10pm on Thursdays; 7pm – 9pm on Fridays, and 1pm – 11pm on Saturdays. This is always with one member of staff, except on Saturdays when, from 6pm – 11pm, there will be a second member of staff assisting. These regular hours are to start on Monday, March 3.
