Christmas is coming quickly, and many people are getting in the seasonal spirit. As expected, grocery store runs are becoming more frequent, with everything from ingredients for baking gingerbread people to the perfect side dish for a potluck holiday gathering making their way onto everyone’s list. Of course, for many loyal customers, that means heading to Publix to pick up whatever needs arise to prep for this year’s holiday feast. But if you’re planning to head to the beloved store to pick up anything last-minute, you may find yourself wondering: Is Publix open on Christmas Day?

While Publix will be open on the days leading up to the big holiday, unfortunately for those of you who happen to forget the pie crust or canned cranberry sauce for this year’s desserts, all Publix stores will be closed on Christmas Day 2022.

As in years past, the fan-favorite chain will be closed on the holiday to allow employees to enjoy celebrations with friends and family members. In fact, since its founding in 1930 by George W. Jenkins, Publix supermarkets have always been closed on Christmas Day.

The good news is that you still have lots of time to shop before December 25 and leading up to your New Year’s celebration. Whether you want to get last-minute Christmas gifts or ingredients to make a plant-based main dish for the vegan at your celebration, Publix will be open on Christmas Eve (December 24) until 7 p.m. and will return to regular hours on December 26.

Although Publix stores will be closed on Christmas, other popular grocery chains — like Acme, Giant Food, Pavilions, and Safeway — will be open. Just be sure to give them a call to confirm their hours of operation before stopping by!
