Google Business profile or GMB hours are inportant to keep uptodate. Just the other week i was visiing my local shop on a Sunday and they were closed. But the tihng was that they had not told anyone they were no closing early on a sunday.

Imagine a customer driving to your business for the first time and you close early on Frdiays and you don’t tell them. They might forgive you but more than likely they will spend there cash else where.
