Whatever your plans are the holidays — breakfast at home, dinner at the in-laws, or a gift exchange with friends — your best bet will be to make a list (and check it twice), because most major grocery stores will be closed on Christmas Day.

All grocery stores will be open on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, with reduced hours. On Christmas Day, however, Albertsons, Bashas', Fry's, Safeway, etc. are all closed.

If you feel like grabbing a meal out, some restaurants are also open Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

H-mart and El Rancho Market will be open on Christmas Day, according to employees at the store. Some CVS and Walgreens stores will also be open on Dec. 25, including 24-hour stores, but hours may vary by location.

So, just in case you need to grab a last-second bottle of wine, appetizer, or stocking stuffer, here are the grocery store hours to know around town.
