Christmas Eve Day Walmart, Target, Kmart store hours: What time do stores close?

See also

If you're hoping to do some last minute Christmas shopping at Walmart and Kmart, you better get moving. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day store hours vary, with many closing early Tuesday, Dec. 24, some stores closing late, others staying open 24-hours nonstop, and some not opening at all on Wednesday, Dec. 25. Orlando Sentinel reported on Tuesday, Dec. 24, that Christmas Eve is the big shopping day of the year for perpetual procrastinators, a much better day for Christmas shopping than on Black Friday.

One last minute shopper told Orlando Sentinel reporters, "there are pretty big savings during the last day, some as much as 70 percent off. 6:30 p.m, we'll be running in the door."

If you plan it right, especially if you live on the west coast, you could wait and hit the stores that stay open the latest just before going home. Walmart is open until 8 p.m. Toys 'R Us stays open until 9 p.m. Kmart and Target closes at 10 p.m., according to International Business Times on Monday, Dec. 23.

When all else fails and you're running late, you can always buy store and restaurant gift cards at Walgreen's, CVS, Rite Aid and many other convenience stores and pharmacies at the last minute. Gift certificates and gift cards can be purchased online on Christmas Day says Forbes, and printed off from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and many other stores.
