Of course there are a lot of times that are hit or miss, so post times that are usually true.

I've noticed that Monday - Thursday after 9pm are pretty good times to go.

Also, Sunday evenings seem to be okay.

This could just be dependent on my location though.

What about you?

Depends on your demographics…

Here I could count the number of people on one hand in any store late on a Sunday night (produce is usually terrible though by then). The other good time to go is first thing in the morning – All you have to deal with then is the early-bird seniors cruising the aisles since everyone is at work.

If you value your sanity you’ll stay away from anywhere on a Saturday though, lolol.
