Last chance: Here are retailers’ Christmas Eve shopping hours, including grocery stores

Still have last-minute shopping to do?

According to the National Retail Federation’s December survey, 16% of Americans were expected to buy their final gifts on Super Saturday and more than 6% were waiting until Christmas Eve.

Catering to the true procrastinators, the majority of stores and malls across the nation are opening early Sunday and will close by dinner time with a few exceptions such as Burlington Coat Factory, CVS Pharmacy, Dollar General, Kmart, Ross, Target and Toys R Us and Walgreens. You’ll also find some grocery stores below with longer hours.

► Bonus: Buy a gift card, get a freebie at these restaurants; some deals end today
► Fingerlings fever: Parents scramble to find hot toys
► Time’s running out: Kohl’s, Toys R Us stay open around the clock until Christmas
