I don't know if this is just in my area but none of the bike shops open before 10am during the week and some don't open till 11 on the weekends. This makes it hard to grab something before a ride or to even call to see if someone has a product I'm looking for. Another issues is some of them are not open later than 6pm which makes it hard for someone like myself who works 8-5/5:30 to stop on my way home from work. Is this sort of the industry standard or am I in a area where they aren't motivated to help people who are awake early? If I could find a local shop that was open from 8 or 9am till 7pm year round they would get all of my bike related spending.
