Default Hours of Operation

I currently am open 10-6 M-F. How many of you are open on Saturday and if so, is it a busy day? I am thinking of opening on Saturday. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

For me personally Saturday is a pretty decent day. I think maybe because people usually work M-F and use the weekend to take care of stuff that don't have time for during the week.

10-6 M-F, 10-2 Sat. office hours, here. I schedule on-site work whenever I need to, though, and charge accordingly based on the time.

Saturdays in the office are usually pretty slow, but we stay open because it gives people with jobs time to come in to get their system.

9:30am-5pm m-f, 9:30am-2pm Sat, closed sunday

But it doesnt matter, when I am open they rarely come in. When I am closed they are banging on the door like insane people. We have shades that cover every window when we are closed and sometimes on a Sunday I am in the shop doing work and two or three people will come up and try to open the door. When I did open on Sunday, nothing.....
