Open all hours for Christmas

MISSISSAUGA, CANADA: Wal-Mart will keep stores in Canada open round the clock this month in a bid to make Christmas shopping more convenient. Eighty Stores will open their doors today (1 December) and not close until Christmas Eve. "We hear again and again, the single most meaningful change we can make for holiday shoppers is to deliver convenience," said Sylvain Prud'homme, senior vice president of operations. "What's more convenient than a store open whenever you're ready to shop?"
