Oh, hey all you last-minute shoppers. We see you. It’s crunch time — Christmas (and Hanukkah! Double whammy!) is almost here. You’ve had all month (and let’s be honest, part of November too) to shop for all your loved ones, but since you didn’t have time, forgot, or simply procrastinated like a boss, it’s about that time to get to it.
You technically still have a few days to get those holiday gifts together, but if you find yourself gift-less on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day, you’ll still have some options. Of course, most stores are closed on Christmas, since the employees will be, you know, celebrating Christmas.
But there will be a handful of stores open on Christmas, because they obviously know you’re coming.
So here are some of the major retailers that will be open on Christmas for all your last-minute shopping needs (well, not all your shopping needs — but enough for you to pretend like you totally bought the gifts way ahead of time).
Disclaimer: It’s probably wise to call your local branches of these stores just to make sure they’re open. The hours of many franchises are decided by local managers.
Stores open on Christmas Eve:
Barnes and Noble
Bed Bath & Beyond
Stores open on Christmas Day:
Happy shopping, procrastinators!
