Very good plugin with no cost

If you are looking for a quick, easy and cheap (free) solution to display business hours, then this is the best plugin. There are so many options available in this plugin - 4 handy widgets, easy to add multiple opening hours (can be for multiple stores), easy to customize per your need, holiday hours, auto class addition to modify special hours/holidays/closed, on so much more. Highly recommend this.
