Whether you’re the type who checks off everyone on your list by the end of Black Friday, or the type who always seems to be scrambling for those last-minute gifts on Christmas Eve, you’re going to need a plan for completing your holiday shopping for all the loved ones on your list (not to mention those obligatory must-dos).
So gather all the intel you need ahead of the holiday rush by scouring ads and coming up with a game plan. An important data point for many value-minded shoppers will be the Walmart Christmas hours for the 2021 holiday shopping season. Here’s what we know about when the big-box retailer will be open and closed this year.
Is Walmart Open on Christmas Day 2021?
Through a press representative, Walmart told Woman’s Day that its stores would be closed on both Thanksgiving and Christmas Day in 2021. So don’t plan on shopping too early or too late in the season, as the store will give its associates those days off.
Is Walmart Open on Christmas Eve 2021?
Outside of those two major holidays, the Walmart rep tells us, “stores will operate as usual.” That means you can expect to rush out on Christmas Eve for last-minute meal fixings, stocking stuffers, and holiday gifts before the store closes for Christmas Day.
What Else to Know About Shopping at Walmart During the Holidays:
Walmart recently announced it would hire about 150,000 new U.S. store associates — mostly to permanent, full-time positions — across the country. But it notes that store associates who like to pick up extra hours over the holiday season would still have the opportunity to do so amid strong demand.
Walmart also recently released the list of its top most-wanted toys for Christmas 2021, with the L.O.L. Surprise OMG House of Surprises and the All-Terrain Batmobile Remote-Control Vehicle both snagging spots on the list.
So expect plenty of good stuff to grab for those on the nice list this year — and plenty of associates on hand to help you seal the deal. Happy shopping!
