CVS stores and pharmacies will be open on Christmas Day 2019, according to Newsweek. However, it should be noted that hours may be limited and will differ by location. Those needing something from the store should call ahead to find out whether or not the closest store will be open during regular hours on Christmas.
As a place where people go for last-minute shopping, CVS can generate a decent amount of business during the holiday season. Many people like the idea of having somewhere they can go for last-minute medication if need be, often when older family members are in town for a visit.
Stores in highly populated regions are more likely to stay open for longer during the holiday because they will probably have more business. Folks living in a smaller town should be prepared for the local CVS to be open for limited hours.
However,Good Housekeeping reports that the majority of CVS stores will stay open for their usual hours, stating, "most CVS locations will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., even though many regularly stay open 24/7. Call ahead for pharmacy hours."
The weekly ad section on the official CVS website offers the company's statement on the matter.
"Most stores open Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. Pharmacy hours may vary."
