You are probably all too familiar with this scenario; jumping in the car, setting the GPS to a store or restaurant near you, travelling in the car, finding a park, and finally arriving at the location only to realise that it closed 20 fucking minutes ago. It’s surprising that with all the weird shit that Google is able to do that there so far hasn’t been a feature integrating opening hours in Google Maps search options. You can manually check opening hours but seriously, it’s 2015. Who has time to press their phone more than three times in succession? Now you won’t have to worry about that at all.

Google Maps now warns users if the place that they are travelling to will be closed before they arrive there as well as the estimated arrival time. Hopefully, this update from Google will solve a lot of liquor run headaches in the future.
