  4. Click Save Changes.

Double-check your Contact Us page to see if your hours are listed there. If they are, you'll have to update that page as well:

Tip

For temporary closures (e.g. a holiday or planned power outage, etc.), we recommend you do not alter the hours shown on your website. Instead, create a short blog post described the reason, dates and times for the closure. Then, add a text slide to your Home Page Slideshow that briefly describes the closure and links back to your blog post. Don't forget to remove the slide following the temporary closure.
