Last chance: Here are retailers' Christmas Eve shopping hours



Fret not, last-minute gifters!

Still have last-minute shopping to do?

According to the National Retail Federation’s December survey, 16% of Americans were expected to buy their final gifts on Super Saturday and more than 6% will wait until Christmas Eve.

Catering to the true procrastinators, the majority of stores and malls across the nation are opening early Sunday and will close by dinner time, with few exceptions.

To plan your last-minute shopping down to the minute, here are Christmas Eve store hours.

Beware, hours can vary by location. Confirm store hours by checking retailer websites or calling your closest location.
