The holidays have officially begun and that means everyone is doing Christmas shopping in various stores, whether it’s gifts for family and friends or getting the eats ready for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

We have compiled a list of which stores will be open and closed on Christmas Day this year so you can prepare accordingly. However, many may be disappointed as many stores this year will be closed completely on Christmas…
