    This is so sad. And now that we have a family member working at one of those places that kept creeping back their closing time as the elbowed what their competitors were putting up as a closing time, so even their own employees didn't know when the store was going to close so people could plan family things. Shameless.

    Is any store closing early Wednesday night ? How about the grocery stores that are normally 24 hour- will they be open all night Wednesday night/Thursday morning ?? We have guests arriving late Wednesday night at RDU and wondered what we might find open if needed.
    Thank You !!
