Here everything is open 7 days a week. Big box stores like Wal-mart are open 24/7. Nothing is closed on weekends.

People routinely work more than 40 hours a week by choice. There was a magazine that came out recently that did one of those "best places to work" surveys. One of the critiques about the company I work for that knocked it down in the rankings was that they encourage people (strongly a lot of times) to go home at 1700. They don't like it when their employees work 60 or 70 hours a week or more and don't like people to work around the clock. This was considered to be a negative of my company, not a plus. Part of this might be because it's a tech company, but still, I doubt that would happen in Europe.
