I say she will have 38 customers.
Any answer will do in this guessing contest.

Would this by any chance be a shop selling pies?

You can't discount the possibility that the number of customers each day is completely random.

Therefore, the puzzle has no clear solution.

The puzzle has a definite answer and a clue to it is in my previous post. Prepare to feel stupid.

The problem is poorly set up because it does nothing to discount a purely random number of customers on any given day.

Edit: I don't even know why I bothered posting this; you didn't understand it the first time, either.

That's a better answer than the intended solution. The probability of the next day being sunday is higher than the probability of the intended solution.

Are you going to take that back, after I PM'd you the answer and explanation, along with the point of my first post on this thread, btw?!

I totally agree to everyone that says that there is no unambiguous solution to this 'problem'. One answer is equally good as any other.

If you want to convince me otherwise, you have to PM me as well.

Edit: And a PM I got with an explanation.
