The ban prevents Apple from making retail employees work between the hours of 9 PM until 6 AM the following morning.

"We just ask that the law is respected," Thomas responded in turn Bordage SUD trade, which explains that "the shops close at 2100, but the time for employees to put everything in order and work in workshops some may work until 11:00 p.m. ".
Under French law, working at night between the hours of 9 PM and 6 AM needs to be justified to ensure the continuity of economic activity or social utility to be legal.

Well, besides that...if the "social value" of a business has to justify it's hours of operation, it's pretty clear that Apple stores should be open from Never to Never.
