why do stores that are open 24hr have locks on the front doors

Report as

There are times when, for example, there is only one employee and they might have an emergency bathroom break.

Because, even though the store might be open 24 hrs it may NOT be open 7 days a week.

What about 7 eleven?

7/11 is a store open 11hrs 7 days of the week. So for the 13 hours it is closed, it would be prudent to keep the front door locked.

The company's first convenience outlets were known as Tote'm Stores since customers "toted" away their purchases, and some even sported genuine Alaskan totem poles in front. In 1946, the name Tote'm was changed to 7-Eleven to reflect the stores' new, extended hours?7 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week.[6] The company's corporate name was changed from Southland Corporation to 7-Eleven, Inc. in 1999.
