Generally shopping malls are open seven days a week. Stores not located in malls are
usually open Mon–Fri 09:00–17:00 and Sat 09:00–13:00. During the December festive season, most malls offer extended shopping hours while independent stores may close between Christmas and January 3. Many public holidays are treated as shopping extravaganza days except for Christmas and New Year’s day. Call ahead to check.
