Yes. The opening hours is useful to users. But I have to say that this data
is quite low on the priority of (at least) local OSM mappers. In OSM, it's
more important to know where a store is than knowing if it is open or not.

That said, the special value of opening_hours=24/7 is definitely very, very
useful and I would suggest that this be shown on the map somehow. For
example, knowing where the 24-hour Mercury Drug stores are is very useful.
