Industries to be closed

Medical institution

practitionerSmall scale operated byMedical institution(Hospital,Clinic) Then Thursday is all day[3]Or there is a place to take a leave of absence from the afternoon[4][5].

This is caused by the circumstances peculiar to the medical world, and because of taking a break in the middle of the week other than Sunday for hard work breaks and because of the medical examination on Saturday, the transfer will be 2 days a week.[6]And medical examination days for local governments, schools, nurseries, etc.[7]And lecture date[5], Meeting at the Medical Association[8]Many medical-related events such as study sessions and academic societies are held on Thursdays.[7][6], It is due to the balance with them. As a matter of fact, it is said that there are times when academic societies and study sessions are scheduled as "a day when it is easy to gather people because many practitioners are on holiday." Since some practitioners also serve as working doctors, they may be in charge of outpatient services at university hospitals, etc. on Thursday's holidays.[8].

bank-Government office-post officeOr stipulated by law[7],Beauty salon / barber shopMedical institutions also set regular holidays as unions and ordinancesMedical associationThere is also a theory that the holidays are set by the ordinance, but this is a popular theory. Also, the government does not directly relate to medical institutions.[9]Since the medical association is a voluntary membership organization, it is up to the medical institution to join or not, and the medical association and the government do not have such authority, and the setting of holidays and consultation hours is at the discretion of the medical institution. Because it can be set[5]However, not all medical institutions uniformly specify a closed day on Thursday because there are no clear rules or restrictions.[4](There are many Wednesdays other than Thursday and Sunday), and it is said that there is a balance with these, and even if you want to set it at your discretion with the authority of the medical institution, you will inevitably have to do it on Thursday.[5].

Service industry

LaundryThen there is a place to make Thursday a regular holiday. Since Saturdays and Sundays are holidays, we often bring them in, and since it is a guideline for returning the cleaning within 2 days after taking it out, it will be finished on Wednesday and can be returned, so we can return what was brought in on Sunday. This is because it is open on Wednesdays and closed on Thursdays. Now that cleaning technology has advanced, things are changing because some of them are brought in in the morning and finished in the evening.[7].

Some florist shops have Thursdays as regular holidays. This is because the market is closed[10].
