    Wish

    I just wanted to see if I could use the word "wish"" in these kinds of sentences. Please, would you correct my mistakes.

    1. At her own wish the woman was buried in her hometown.
    2. According to the customers' wishes, the supermarket is now open late in the evening.
    3. She had not the slightest wish to meet her family again.

    Re: Wish

    The first and third work. The second doesn't - 'according to' is not appropriate there.

    Re: Wish

    I am wondering if I could rephrase the sentence No 2. into the following:

    In accordance with the wishes of our customers, the supermarket is now open late in the evening
