Publix is one of the most beloved grocery chains, and people count on it for all of their most important occasions and family meals. There are few meals more important than those we enjoy to start a whole new year, and many are probably hoping to stop by their local Publix for ingredients for breakfast or brunch on New Year’s Day or even appetizers for celebrating on New Year’s Eve. But is Publix open on New Year’s Day 2024?

Publix was closed on Christmas Day 2023 and had modified hours on Christmas Eve 2023, so loyal shoppers may be wondering if the same will be true for New Year’s Eve 2023 and New Year’s Day 2024.

The good news is that shoppers will have much better luck when it comes to shopping for last-minute groceries for New Year’s Eve parties and New Year’s Day brunches. Publix locations will be open on both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day this year. While it’s possible some locations may modify their hours, such as closing a bit early on New Year’s Eve or on New Year’s Day, they will be open and operational, whether that means picking up cheese for your New Year’s Eve party cheeseboard or bagels and smoked salmon for New Year’s Day brunch. Publix liquor stores and pharmacies will also be open, but it’s possible they may also be modifying their hours. It’s a good idea to call ahead or check the store locator to confirm hours at your nearest location.

Publix is the favorite store for thousands, and for many reasons. It’s almost always open and they have lots of popular store features, and they’re known for their delicious deli subs, bakery, and even fresh-ground peanut butter. No wonder people are relieved to hear they are open on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day!
