Brazilian retailer GPA will no longer offer 24-hour service at any of its stores due to low demand during the pre-dawn hours, according to a Tuesday statement.

GPA has focused on cutting costs at its supermarkets and home furnishing chains as part of a more aggressive strategy to keep down prices since French group Casino secured control of Brazil's biggest retailer last year. (Editing by Diane Craft)
