Walmart hours near me today

Walmart is the largest retailer chain of supermarkets, discount department stores, and grocery stores in the world. Its stores are spread out across the United States of America, with its headquarters in Bentonville.

Walmart is also home to some of the best products and price deals. It’s where you’d want to go if you need groceries urgently. You can buy everything from fresh produce, meat and dairy, down to clothes and electronics.

If you’re planning on visiting the store soon, I’ve put together a short guide on how I found Walmart hours near me today. It’ll help you avoid bumping into a “Closed” sign at the store, this holiday season.

Is Walmart open today?

Walmart is definitely open today from 6 AM to 11 PM. This is because today is Boxing Day, and not Christmas Day. Walmart opens on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day, but not on Christmas Day.

So in the future, if you need to go on a last minute shopping errand, it’s best to do it on Christmas Eve. Otherwise, you’d have to wait until the store reopens on Boxing Day.

On Christmas Eve, most Walmart stores stay open until 6 PM. Some stores may decide to stay open until 8 PM as store schedules vary across locations. So the opening and closing days and hours aren’t always the same. 

It’s best to use Walmart’s online store locator to find out the schedule of the nearest Walmart stores. If you’ve never used it before, we’ll show you how.

  • You will see how far the store is, the closing hours, and the address of the store. To get more information about a store, tap or click on the “Detail” option. This will allow you to search for a particular product and know if the store has it in stock. E.g. Rooibos tea.
  • If you want to know what other services the store has, click on “More“. You’d see other information, such as if the Photo Center that takes passport photos, Walmart pickup, and the Pharmacy are open.

Walmart will remain open on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, according to Good Housekeeping. According to a spokesperson from Walmart:

All Walmart stores will be open during normal business hours New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Other stores are also following in Walmart’s footsteps. CVS, Walgreens, and Target have also decided to stay open on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
