It depends on the stores, some are open late and some close early it depends on the shop and what they are selling. Restaurants stay open late and some shops stay open for people to shop after dinner. Also at Time Square there are street musicians and acts going on so there is entertainment too.
Sorry I don't know
I don't know, but judging from the previous answers you'll have to check with individual shops. I bet they are open later during "the season," roughly December to April.
I think some close at 6 pm, however the restaurants and gift shops open late . Check on the internet , they have free music one evening either Fri or Sat , I can not remember exactly what day of the week. Have fun and enjoy your trip.
Sorry, I do not know
I believe most shops close at 10 pm but they sometimes have music that goes later and many of the restaurants are open later.
