Have you looked at GoodRelations? It's an RDF-based method of marking up
businesses (including stores/branches/offices), opening hours, products,
services and offers. Via RDFa it can be embedded in HTML.

GoodRelations is apparently being consumed by Yahoo and Google; and is
being published by O'Reilly (the book publishers) and BestBuy (an
electronics retailer) amongst others.
