Business Open and Close hours for each day of the week - how best to structure in the database using ASP and javascript

I'll be using this code for a timepicker so businesses can select their hours of business for each day of the week:

<input name="time" value="" />
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $('input[name="time"]').ptTimeSelect();
    });
</script>

Open in new window


I need to know the best way to structure this in the ClientAdverts table: i.e. how best to store the business opening and closing hours from Monday - Sunday.

Can this be done in one field? E.g. An 'OpenHours' field containing all the open and close times from Monday - Sunday for each business listing?

The the data will need to be listed separately/vertically for each day of the week, e.g:

Monday: 08.30 - 17.30
Tuesday: 08.30 - 17.30
Sunday: Closed

Etc.

Some help and suggestions would be great.

The only difference between this

<input name="time" value="" />

and this

<input name="time" value="" />
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $('input[name="time"]').ptTimeSelect();
    });
</script>

is the second version creates the  popup.  

Think of the javascript as this

<%
for each input with name = "time"
     make a cool pop up when the user clicks the field
next
%>

Knowing that, I would change

$('input[name="time"]').ptTimeSelect(); to

to

$('.timepicker').ptTimeSelect();

Now you have

<%
for each input that has a class of timepicker
     make a cool pop up when the user clicks the field
next
%>

and that one piece of javascript will work if you have multiple fields that need the pop up like below regardless of the ID or name.

<input name="time" class="timepicker" value="" />
<input name="time2" class="timepicker" value="" />
<input name="time3" class="timepicker" value="" />
<input name="time4" class="timepicker" value="" />
