That includes Weis, Giant, Publix, and Stop and Shop.

Other stores will be open limited hours, including Whole Foods. Check with your local location for specific hours, but this mostly means the stores will close a few hours earlier than usual and perhaps open an hour or two later.

All stores will be open regular hours on January 2.
