When are the least busiest times to go to the grocery store?

Except for like 3am, because I like to sleep. I like to go on the weekend, but that is probably busier. Are mornings better, though. Are they significantly less crowded during the week?

I sometimes go before noon and find it to be fairly quiet then.

Excuse me for saying so, but this sounds like classic avoidance behavior. If it is, it won't help you get over SA any sooner.

From experience, anytime after 7pm. By then, everyone's at home making supper.

I go around 8:30 or 9 pm on a week night. I avoid grocery stores entirely on weekends.

weekend night time - everyone is out either partying or going on dates.
weekday either friday nights

i tend to go after 11pm/or 1am, cause my grocery store claims to be 20 hour store.

It isn't necessarily that simple. If you won't go shopping otherwise and don't want to become malnourished it would be a good idea to begin with - especially since not eating properly will just make your anxiety worse. I know this all too well. Then you could always work your way up to going shopping at busier times.
