Believe it or not, Christmas is just around the corner — and with it comes several days of delicious meals, parties with family and friends, and an abundance of gift-giving. If you’re hosting a gathering or two this holiday season, now is the time to start planning your menu and shopping for all of the ingredients to make Christmas dinner. 

But even the most experienced hosts and seasoned chefs run out of ingredients at the last minute or decide to add an extra dish to the menu, so it’s essential to know where to turn for a last-minute Christmas Eve and Christmas day grocery run. If Kroger is your favorite place to shop for groceries, you’ll definitely want to keep their Christmas hours in mind heading into the holiday.

What Are Kroger’s Christmas Hours?

Christmas Eve is always on December 24, and this year the holiday falls on a Sunday, which means that Monday, December 25, is Christmas Day. Luckily for those who prefer to shop at Kroger, the grocery chain will be open on Christmas Eve, although it will operate on a reduced schedule, with doors open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. However, if you need any groceries for Christmas Day, you’ll want to stock up the day before, because Kroger locations are closed on Christmas Day. The store will reopen for business as usual the following day, Tuesday, December 26.

Even if you aren’t hosting any Christmas gatherings this holiday season, you can still enjoy being in the holiday spirit by baking Christmas cookies, building a gingerbread house, or making hot chocolate from scratch right at home. Kroger has a reputation for affordable prices, and the store has an incredible assortment of grocery items fit to tackle just about any recipe. Just be sure to shop for everything you need before Kroger closes on Christmas Eve so you can make the most out of celebrating Christmas Day with your loved ones.
