Is Walmart open on Christmas 2019? It's one of the most frequently-asked questions around the holidays—and with good reason. The store is one of the most popular spots to shop for, well, just about everything. Whether you need to stock up on a few more inexpensive gifts for out-of-town guests, grab some last-minute ingredients for your Christmas dinner, or even shop for a Christmas card or two for someone who fell off your list, odds are, you can find it at your local Walmart.

That's why it's so important to stay abreast of the retailer's holiday hours. We're sharing them with you here in the hopes that you'll plan out your shopping ahead of time. It's true that you don't always know exactly what Christmas Day "emergencies" will arise, nor will you be able to prep and plan for every little detail of such a big holiday. But at least now you won't have to spend quite as much time driving to and from stores that may not even be open for business—especially if the roads are icy!

So, is Walmart open on Christmas Day 2019?

We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but the short answer is sadly: No. The chain store, which is typically open 24 hours a day, does tend to keep its doors open for all major holidays including Easter and New Year's Day. However, in previous years, Walmart has remained closed all day on December 25.

Of course, it's not the only store that typically closes on the holiday: Popular spots like Macy's and Target also tend to give their employees the day off on Christmas.

The good news: If you do find yourself in need of an extra stick of butter for your Christmas cookies, you can always head to one of the many popular convenience or drug stores that remain open on Santa's big day. Retailers like Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens, Duane Reade, and 7-Eleven are typically all open, though they may be operating under a special holiday schedule.

Is Walmart open on Christmas Eve 2019?

For part of the day, yes. The retailer traditionally shuts its doors early on Christmas Eve, around 6 p.m. You can check your local store's specific opening time through their store locator feature.
