Nearly every third household in Israel prefers to do major food shopping on a Thursday, according to a survey conducted by the Manufacturers Association of Israel. The study found that 31 percent of all households like to do their food shopping on Thursday, 24% on a Wednesday, 11% on a Friday, 10% on Tuesday, 6% on a Monday, while 31% didn't have a fixed day of preference for making their purchases. Age made a difference, however, with Thursday ranking as the most popular day among 18-to-24 year olds with 38%, but just 17% of those 55 and older saying they preferred to shop then.
