While the "siesta" habit has largely become a myth in Spain, our timetable is still different from that of other countries. Foreigners may find Spanish usual business hours
a bit unusual. In particular, small stores may be closed from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. As a general rule, supermarkets close at 9, malls and department stores (Carrefour, El Corte Inglés, Hipercor) at 10, the Dealz variety store at 12 p.m., and small convenience stores even later.
