Christmas 2015 store hours vary this year from some stores closing early to some stores being open longer than usual. Among the stores closing early on Christmas Eve is Costco, Best Buy, and Kohl’s. Stores staying open late on Christmas Eve include Kmart, Sears, Target, and Toys ‘R Us.
As CBS Money Watch reports on December 21, many stores are keeping their doors open late on Christmas Eve this year so last-minute shoppers can get their Christmas gifts before Christmas morning arrives. Many retailers are hoping that the late store hours combined with special holiday discounts will boost their wallets.

Christmas Day 2015 store hours are the same as in previous years. All stores are closed. However, as CBS Money Watch reports, “some are even predicting that bricks-and-mortar retailers may start opening their doors on Christmas Day within three years, thanks to Americans’ desire to get a head start on post-holiday sales and returns.”
