— Raleigh residents who prefer to do their grocery and general interest shopping in the middle of the night have a myriad options to choose from — but not quite as many as they did a few years back.

The Harris Teeter in Cameron Village never closes, and neither do a scattering of CVS and Walgreens locations throughout the city, but the region’s largest and most comprehensive retailer, Wal-Mart, has slowly been scaling back the hours of operation in some of its Raleigh locations.

The Wal-Mart Supercenter on New Hope Church Road in North Raleigh was, until very recently, a 24-hour location, but has shifted to an 18-hour schedule.

The shift toward closing a number of Wal-Mart stores between midnight and 6 a.m. is not unique to Raleigh; Bloomberg reported in late July that the company would be making this switch at a number of its locations throughout the country.

There are three other Walmarts within Raleigh's city limits. The Walmart located at 6600 Glenwood Avenue also operates an 18-hour/day schedule, while both the Walmart in Brier Creek on Glenwood Avenue and the Walmart near the Triangle Town Center on Town Boulevard are, at present, 24-hour locations.

    And to follow up, your article says the Walmart in north Raleigh, but the subject of the story is "East Raleigh Walmart". Make up your mind, and make it clear to your readers. You are getting paid for this stuff.

    Are you geniuses talking about the Walmart near the map you show (on New Hope, not New Hope Church Rd.) or the one that is actually in north Raleigh, off of New Hope Church and Wake Forest? Why wouldn't you post an actual address so this was clear?
