Earlier on New Year’s Eve:

Pretty much all stores are open, including Walmart, Target, and Kmart, but many are closing earlier than usual.

Walmart stores are closing between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., depending on the location. On the other hand, Walmart Super Centers will stay open all night as usual.

Most Best Buy, Kmart, and Macy’s stores will close at 7 p.m., while most Target and Toys R Us locations will close at 8 p.m. or 9 p.m.

Store hours do vary across states and regions, so it’s best to call the specific location if you’re running out later in the day.

Supermarkets are also primarily closing earlier than usual. Kroger stores are shutting down at 6 p.m. Trader Joe’s stores are closing at 6 p.m. Costco stores are closing at 6 p.m. Publix stores are shutting down at 7 p.m. Whole Foods stores will be closing at 8 p.m. Stop and Shop stores are shutting down at 9 p.m. Giant stores are closing at 9 p.m. Weis stores are closing at 9 p.m. 

Safeway has not indicated any earlier closing times; neither has ShopRite.

Some grocery stores will not open at all on New Year’s Day, while some will open for regular hours or limited hours.

Also, keep in mind that New Year’s Day is a federal holiday, meaning the post office, mail service, the DMV, and other government services will mostly be unavailable. However, pretty much all of the services will be available on New Year’s Eve, although many will close early.

Most public schools will be off for both January 1 and January 2.

Other stores that people are wondering about include Home Depot, J.C. Penney, and Bloomingdale’s.

Home Depot locations will have mostly special hours, with most locations open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Most retailers, such as Kohl’s, J.C. Penney, and Bloomingdale’s will be open on both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, but some will have slightly limited hours. Check with your local location for specific hours, but except closing times around 8 p.m. or 9 p.m.
