Tesco Lotus is open from 6 am to 12 midnight. Yes, 12 midnight! I was so surprised during my first year here in Thailand to see that on certain seasons hypermarkets and malls can close so late. From where I am, malls close at 8 o’clock during the weekdays and everyone will be rushing by 7:30Pm as staff gets busy preparing for the shops to close.
I guess many people really buy a lot of things during the Christmas, New year and Chinese New years and that’s why these shops can still make a lot of money even during the late hours. I’m people are busy buying some food items for their celebrations as well as gift items that ranges from cigar gifts to healthy gift baskets.
