I am in the process of creating new templates for all of our customer
letters. I have been able to get rid of "CST", but I cannot seem to
get our new letter vendor to get the rest of the sentence the way I
want it. So, I'm wondering if I'm in the wrong. Which is the correct
usage of listing multiple business hours with a time zone? Should
there even be a comma in the first example?
- 8:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. Monday through Thursday and 8:00 A.M. to
7:00 P.M. Friday, Central Time.
- 8:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. Monday through Thursday Central Time and
8:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. Friday Central Time.
Thanks in advance for your advice,
