BUSINESS DAY   営業日、営業時間

Explanation

  • When talking about a particular business or organization, a business day is any day on which its offices are open.

    More generally, a business day is any day on which most corporate and government offices are open. This usually means any day except Saturday, Sunday, and national holidays.

    A business day is also the PART of the day during which a business or organization is open, such as from 9:00 to 5:00.
  • 特定の会社や組織について使う場合、 business day は、そのオフィスが営業している日のことを言います。

    より一般的には、 business day は、多くの会社や政府機関が営業している日をさします。通常は、土曜、日曜、祝日を除く日、つまり平日のことです。

    また、 business day は、9時から5時など、1日のうちで会社や組織が営業している時間をさすこともあります。
