    Is it wrong to say

    "Till when is this open" at the counter of a bookshop?

    I was asking when it is gonna close today, but the clerk told me it is gonna be open till Saturday or something like that.

    So what is the right expression to ask how late the shop is gonna be open? "Till what time"?

    I would say, "When do you close?"
    Please don't use 'gonna' when you mean 'going to'.
