An emergence of sense?

It had long been one of my examples of the world going mad. Supermarkets in the UK -certainly the ones around here- would be open 24/7 (except for weekends and bank holidays, when opening times would be less).

But it appears that this is no longer the case. Now opening hours are 6am to 1am. Still plenty of time, but at least a little bit of a break, and that is closer to something sensible!.

I wonder what caused the change. And what will be the explanations from the few economists who wrote articles explaining that 24/7 was pretty much a pre-determined conclusion from economic forces.
