    I mean, they will never close the door, so why bother having the doors in the first place?

    The zombie apocalypse of course! wink I actually searched for an answer to this one a while back and if I'm not mistaken it's a state business requirement.

    I agree, it is probably a state or local requirement. Also consider a storm or an emergency. They would certainly have to be able to lock the place up when needed.

    I think it's in case they do close (emergencies, major holidays, etc), but mainly to keep wind, rain, snow and other outside elements outside. Having doors will keep heating/cooling costs down.

    A lot of people also ask why they have locks on their doors!

    In this area, it's a matter of weather. We get to about 115F during the summer, down to as low as -40F in the winter, and very little weather in-between, so there must be doors to help regulate indoor temperature. The local Wal-Mart has to lock certain doors on windy days because otherwise people would have a wind tunnel, and we frequently get rain and hail. There was also a manhunt nearby last week for a triple homicide suspect, and all businesses and public buildings were locked down so that he would have nowhere to hide and would not have the opportunity to take hostages. Maybe that's one reason why it's a business requirement?
