Christmas day is a good time to relax and celebrate with friends and family, but that does not mean you do not need to go to the store for batteries, missing ingredients or even last-minute gifts.
Here you will find the stores that are open on Christmas day, including that day’s schedule.
Tip: A quick note before running to the stores on this list: call before you go. Often, the decision to open at Christmas is left to managers and owners of franchises and can make the call in case they open at Christmas.
I suggest you call the place you plan to visit before leaving to make sure they are open.
If you want to eat something while you’re out, see what restaurants open on Christmas day. I also have a list of stores that are open on Christmas Eve and those that are open on New Year’s Eve.
