Random question for you -what time are supermarkets open until? We live in QLD and it drives DH nuts that they shut at 9pm weeknights (and 5pm on Sat!). We moved from overseas where they were open 24 hours. We are considering a move to Melbourne so just curious....

Some 10 and some midnight where I live. Kmart is open 25 hours though I think. It does my head in that the shopping centres shut at 5.

Thanks Savoy. It really bugs DH that he can't shop late at night here!

All of the Coles and Safeway/Woolworths near me are open until midnight every night.

That will make it very appealing to DH! Thank you!

Don't just move because of the supermarkets though wink

It is a big factor for DH as it really irks him! I think he would enjoy the cooler climate too.

Don't move for the climate either... Melbourne gets blinking hot too! Windy and hot... Really .. Rock and a hard place if you don't like it hot! Hot windy, hot dry, hot humid,hot humid windy and wet! Depending which bit of Aus you go too!
What do you or dh need from the supermarket at night? That they don't have at Coles service stations of 7 11?? Intrigued grin

DH is a night owl. He loves just having the option of going shopping when he pleases (on the way home from playing sport for example). Finds not having it to be very restrictive and it drives him bonkers. We are used to malls being open until 9pm every night and supermarkets 24 hours. It doesn't bother me so much as I would rather sleep Only gets to me when I go to the mall on Sunday afternoon and the stores have shut at 3pm but the mall is still open confused
