Can you tell me what stores will be open and closed on Christmas Day, 2022? When it comes to After Christmas 2022, will they have early hours? Here, you’ll find the answers to these and other frequently asked questions.

It has been tradition for well over a decade now for large retailers like Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, and others to begin their in-store Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving Day. Although not free from criticism, the practise seemed set to continue until the spread of the coronavirus.

Because of the public health danger posed by large crowds, in-store purchases became more hazardous for customers in the year 2020. Major stores swiftly announced they would be closed on Thanksgiving Day in response to public pressure and concerns for the safety of their employees. While COVID-19 was undoubtedly a factor, some stores justified their actions by casting them as a reward for their hardworking frontline staff. But other stores stayed open, mostly pharmacy, grocery stores, and other necessities.

Following the excellent reception from customers in 2020, many big stores again closed on Thanksgiving Day in 2021. Even more extreme measures have been taken by some stores, such as Target, which has announced that it will never again be open for in-store shopping on Thanksgiving Day.

Conduct not worry if you plan to do some Black Friday shopping in 2022. A small number of businesses, mostly grocery stores (since everyone needs those last-minute ingredients!), will be open. The following is a list of businesses’ hours of operation for Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24.

Stores open and closed on Christmas Day in 2022

Many stores have been closed the past two Thanksgivings, with sales instead being made available on the web. On the other hand, with the rise of in-store purchases, we can’t be certain that 2022 will provide the same schedule.

There will likely be more closures announced for the Thanksgiving weekend, so keep checking back for updated information on those, as well as store hours and Black Friday sales.
