It depends on what you're looking for, to be honest. Plenty of CVS and Walgreen's locations are 24/7, and they carry basic groceries, OTC medicines, etc. I think quite a few Albertson's are still 24/7 as well. If you're looking to do serious grocery shopping then it's probably going to be easier to go daytime hours, though.


And to be fair, this isn't limited to Vegas. Back in the NY area, for example, even a lot of suburban grocery stores used to be 24/7, and then cut back hours. It's mostly supply/demand; it's just not worth keeping an entire store open if only a couple people are coming in between midnight and 6am, especially given how thin the margins are for grocery stores to begin with.

Back when the big grocery stores first went 24/7, it was said that the stores were already "open" internally all night for stocking, cleaning, etc, and that the only significant increase in cost would be to pay a cashier or two to be on duty, i.e. they had the lights on and were running the air con anyway, so it was no large leap to open to the public. I'm a die hard night person, and was quite happy with that change.

This.

Also not to mention that most stores now are self-checkout which would technically only require a few workers to be there to assist the customers with any issues/security, That's exactly what WinCo does they'll keep the store open and clean/stock/unpack while customers shop; the point is that its a matter of convenience for the customers; Haven't really heard of thieving being an issue with them either.

Vegas became like most other cities with the slowly but surely diversifying economy. Casino biz isn't anywhere near the share of the economy as it used to be and the night shift workforce at the casinos is getting cut a lot due to automation and centralization of services. As you can tell by traffic vast majority of workers do normal workday shifts and that wasn't the case years ago.

Horsepoop. Most people still come to Vegas to gamble. If they're drinking in nightclubs it's still in a venue the casino owns. Diversification my behind.
