Fact: Christmas celebrations take quite a lot of preparation. You spend the day prior baking Christmas cookies for Santa and putting the finishing touches on your decorations. All the while, you’re busy watching classic Christmas movies or wrapping presents. But wait! Wasn’t dad supposed to pick up the family Christmas pajamas? And how could you forget the ham?! It’s only the most important part of the Christmas dinner menu. You might not have planned for it, but you’ll likely need to make a trip to Walmart in the eleventh hour (that is, if it’s even open on Christmas Day). 👀

While the aisles of Walmart aren’t exactly where you picture yourself come December 25, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll want to know all the stores open on Christmas Day, including whether Walmart is open on Christmas in 2023. Just in case! Even if Christmas seems to be living up to your expectations, you’re bound to experience a reality check at some point. Maybe you decide to bake cinnamon rolls at the last second—but wait! You need more butter. Or you might be on the hunt for a few last-minute stocking stuffers. And God forbid you run out of wrapping paper! Either way, when it comes to holiday shopping, the retail chain is your best bet for everything from groceries to gifts. But is Walmart open on Christmas? That there is the real question.

So, is Walmart open on Christmas 2023?

We’re sorry to be the ones to break the news to you, but no, Walmart will not be open on Christmas Day in 2023. In fact, it’s one of the few days of the entire year that Walmart closes its doors completely to customers. A representative for the store tells us that shoppers can expect the store to resume its regular hours the next day—so, if your errand isn’t pressing, you can always check back on December 26 at 6 a.m. And if it is pressing, you can try to make it to the store sometime on December 24.

Is Walmart open on Christmas Eve 2023?

That brings us to your next question: Yes! Most Walmart stores will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time on Christmas Eve. Make sure you check with your specific store before heading out, though, as these hours may vary. You can even use the online Walmart store locator tool or the Walmart App to get that info.

But if you find you can’t make it to Walmart in time, there are plenty of other convenience stores and grocery stores open on Christmas. (Check out these restaurants open on Christmas Day, too!)
