Walmart Isn't Open on Christmas But These Places Are!


walgreen signHey, we know -- not everyone in the world celebrates Christmas. Does is seem like the whole world shuts down on that holiday? What if you don't feel like spending this Sunday in your pajamas, eating Chinese takeout and scrolling through your Netflix queue? Maybe you'd like to go out and do a little shopping -- while the stores are practically empty! Heaven!

Well, I'll warn you, it's pretty slim pickings. Most of the retail chain stores that stay open for the holiday are drug stores. But hey, you need to stock up on cotton balls sometime, right? Keep reading to find out where you can shop this Christmas.

Keep in mind, hours are for most stores, but not necessarily all. Check your local grocery store as some independent stores may be open.

  • Cumberland Farms (convenience store): 8:00 a.m. - midnight
  • CVS: 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.
  • Dunkin' Donuts: 6:00 a.m. - noon
  • Family Dollar: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
  • Pathmark: Check your local store; some offer limited hours.
  • Rite Aid: Regular hours
  • Starbucks: 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
  • Walgreens: 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

So... anyone up for a movie? Most theaters are open on Christmas Day. 

Do you plan to go shopping on Christmas Day or is it nice to take a break from spending money for a day?

We'd planned on none. Then I saw Dunkin' Donuts on this list. And, well, it IS on the way to MIL's house so we may just have to stop for some coffee :-)

My hubby has to go to work at 2 this afternoon, so I'm going to make a nice little turkey dinner before he has to go. But first, presents! LOL I don't even care about what I'm getting (very much LOL) but just can't wait to see the looks on my hubby's and daughter's faces when they open their gifts.

We don't celebrate Christmas so today is just another boring day!

When I was a teen my family would go to the movies on Christmas. We had a big dinner with lots of family and friends on the 24th so we kept Christmas Day low key.

Careful, most Starbucks are closed. Usually one store per district is open; and then the limited hours vary!
