A fallacy about why there are locks on doors if the store is open 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. -
At 1:30 in the morning you are driving down Walton Road when you pass the

will only cause an inconvenience for employees and customers.
The idea of adding locks onto the doors is only going to cost the store more
money. Also, it would give the managers one extra key on their already big key chain
that they really have no use for. Since they are open every second of the year, they
never need to lock the doors between shifts. When one person's shift is over then
the next person will come in and take over. It's not like most stores where at night
when the store closes they lock the doors and go home. Then, in the morning
whoever is going to be opening comes in and unlocks the store and gets it ready for

open all the time because there always has to be someone working.
