For the last minute procrastinators, some stores will be open on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24 and Christmas, Dec. 25 for final holiday shopping.
While majority of stores were open on Thanksgiving Day this year ahead of Black Friday shopping, many major retailers are closing their doors for the Christmas season.
For Christmas Eve, Walmart, Target, Kmart and Costco will have limited hours on Christmas Eve. Walgreens and CVS will be open for a few hours on Christmas Day. Many restaurants like Denny's, Starbucks, IHOP and Jack in the Box along with movie theaters will also be open on Dec. 25.
Nearly every store will resume normal hours on December 26 to cater to returns and exchanges.
