I know it's very basic but I am a beginner... If anybody could be of any help it would be fantastic :)

I know how to ask about closing and opening time (of shops, offices etc) but I don't know how to answer if for example the closing and opening time is different during weekend or on a specific day.

Thank you for your help :)

  • So, you want to answer with something like: On weekdays, we are open 9 to 7, and on weekends 12-9?

You can simply preface the specific days with <day(s)> は. Ex.

  • [本店]{ほん・てん}の[営業時間]{えい・ぎょう・じ・かん}は9:00から20:00までです。 → This store's business hours are from 9:00 to 20:00.
  • 金曜日は <another schedule> → A specific day
  • [平日]{へい・じつ}は <another schedule> → Weekdays
  • [週末]{しゅう・まつ}・[土日]{ど・にち}は <another schedule> → Weekends/Sat. & Sun.
  • [月火水]{げつ・か・すい}は <another schedule> → Multiple days (here, Mon., Tues., and Wed.)
  • [祝日]{しゅく・じつ}は <another schedule> → Holidays
