Christmas is almost here, and for the next few days that means some time off from the daily grind. That also means different store hours for some of our favorite shopping spots on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

While everyone is off from work, it's helpful to know what's open — and what's not — Christmas Day 2016. To help you plan your grocery and shopping needs we've compiled a list of the holiday operating hours for some of the most popular go-to retailers, fast food restaurants, and grocery stores.

Keep in mind: Open hours vary by location, so call your nearest location before making the trip (and cursing us out).
