If it were a high Jewish population I could see locals being closed on
Saturdays, yes, but otherwise "not so much" for retail even then.
Sundays, yes, too.
When we first moved to Lynchburg, VA, that almost everything in the
downtown area closed at noon on Wednesday was unusual for us, to say the
least... :) That was '68; by the time we left in '78 think it was a
thing of the past. Of course, in that original time, women shopping
downtown were expected to have their hats and white gloves, too... :)
I don't know whether it's still the same, but when I was growing up in
the UK, some areas had "early closing" on Wednesday, some on Thursday,
and some on Saturday. Pretty much everything was closed on Sunday.
