Google Maps reveals best times for grocery shopping, restaurants to avoid crowds

Google Maps can now tell you the best, least-crowded times to head to the grocery store.

In a blog post they released Tuesday, November 16th, U.S. grocery stores are least-busy on Mondays at 8AM, and most congested on Saturdays from 12PM to 3PM.

Google also says the busiest time for coffee shops is Saturdays at 10AM, while they’re emptiest on Tuesdays at 4PM. Those hoping to get a restaurant to themselves should make a reservation for Tuesdays at 3PM, and should know that Fridays at 6PM will be the busiest time for the business all week.
