OK, I made a few phone calls to find out more.

Albertson's in Oakland Park is open until 2 a.m.

The following Super Wal-Mart stores are open 24 hours:

Pompano Beach
Margate
Coral Springs (Turtle Creek Drive)
Coral Springs (Coral Ridge Drive)
Coconut Creek
Pembroke Pines

Publix & Winn-Dixie all close early.

That's good enough for me. At least there are late-night options for someone who has a craving for chicken wings in the middle of the night.

I think it does have to do with crime. There are so many bums and thugs out there that those stores would have their hands full with theft and disturbances during those late hours. There is so much riff-raff in South FL in the vibrant areas. They'd spend a fortune on security.

Another thing to consider is that the OP is from the Midwest where there are more factories. When you have factories you have three shifts per day so there are people looking to pick things up after work at more different times of the day.

And some Sedanos

I have gone there twice since our superwalmart is even further away, but usually our 24 hour Walgreens resolves all after hours needs.

I remember the 24 hour supermarkets in the early 90's. I dont recall having so many 24 Walgreens/Eckerds back then. I think the reason we dont have many is because is not very profitable to pay managers and employees for a few customers.
