Although we predict the three biggest national chain pharmacies will be open on Christmas Day 2024 — CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid — they typically have reduced holiday hours. Check with your local store to confirm their hours.

TIP: Walgreens closed most of their stores on Thanksgiving Day in 2023, which was a first for the pharmacy chain. Their 24-hour locations did remain open on Thanksgiving, though.


Convenience Stores Open on Christmas Day 2024

Most 24/7 convenience store locations typically remain open 24 hours on Christmas Day for any last-minute snack or drink needs or other essentials. Other locations we expect to be open on Christmas Day in 2024 with limited hours. Call ahead in advance of the holiday to confirm local times.
