What Stores Are Open (and Closed) on Christmas Day 2018

For those of you who forgot to get a gift for your brother’s girlfriend or step-uncle—or are simply looking for something to do on Christmas Day, we’ve got you covered with a list of stores that will be open and closed on Dec. 25, 2018.

If you were hoping to make a last minute trip to Target or Walmart, you’re not in luck: both retail chains will be closed on Christmas Day. They will, however, be open on Christmas Eve, along with a number of other stores like JCPenney, Macy’s, and Kmart.

And if you have a few hours to kill and don’t know what to do, many movie theater chains across the country will be open.

Do check individual stores’ local hours before going, as many are franchises and hours may differ from location to location.
