DENVER — Some major retailers and restaurants will be open on Christmas Day. Open times and locations vary, so it’s always a good idea to call ahead.
Many Walgreeens and Rite Aid stores will be open Christmas Day, although the pharmacies in each usually have shorter hours than the main store.
If your Christmas food plans go awry, many, but not all, iHop and Denny’s restaurants will stay open Christmas Day.
Buca di Beppo is open Christmas Day as are some Boston Market locations and Buffalo Wild Wings.
Some fast-food restaurants including McDonalds will also open on Christmas. Some Starbucks locations are open on the holiday.
Remember that Christmas is the one day a year Walmart, Target and King Soopers (even the 24-hour stores) are closed. Some Safeway stores will be open, however, from 8 a.m. till 7 p.m.
