WHY is B&H closed on Saturdays? WHY?

I want to buy the K-3 and B & H is closed.
What in the world is up with that?
What retailer in this day & age, closes on Saturday?
Ugh. Patience is a virtue~

Moved from Price Watch.

B&H is closed on Saturday for religious reasons as are many other Jewish owned businesses in New York and New Jersey. They are however open on Sundays. And while they are closed, it doesn't prevent you from placing an order. Think of it in this regard: they aren't open 24 hours a day either, but you can still place an order at 2:35 am and know it will get processed quickly the following day.

The B&H web site won't let you order from sunset (?) on Fridays until sunset on Saturdays, with no exceptions. They're unique in this regard, as most if not all other NYC store web sites don't shut down as far as I know. So, if you log on Saturday night or Sunday morning, you should be able to place your order.

CeciProAm -- Thanks for your interest in B&H and for your order. I trust Adam's explanation is sufficient. Thanks too to Adam for stepping in before I could get here.

Yes, of course, I am embarrassed that I had to ask.
I used to live in the city but I have spent too much
time in the South & forgot the rhythms & traditions
of my first love.
Thank you for observing the Sabbath.
