When smaller kiosks close for prayer times or non-business hours, many of them simply cover up and drape their merchandise with large cloths. 

It's common to see workers pray outside shops in malls. Often prayer rugs are available for whoever wants to use them. 

Thievery is rare in Saudi Arabia, where penalties can be very stiff. Most people in this country are honest and respectful of others' property.

It must give one a sense of security to see people praying publicly like that.

I was working with an older man when I was young. He spread newspaper on the floor and then, as I know now but did not then, prayed towards Mecca. As a naΓ―ve white country boy, it freaked me out.
