While Santa might need that Pub Sub to fuel his long journey, he might need to make that stop a little earlier in the day. It is best to know when does Publix close on Christmas Eve and what the hours are for Christmas Day.

When it comes to grocery stores being open and closed on the holidays, the hours tend to be different from the every day. Although there can be that last minute must grab or the forgotten food item, the downside is that many grocery stores will be closed before everyone sits down for the feast of the seven fishes, heads to Christmas Eve service, or gets tucked in their beds dreaming of Santa and his reindeer.

According to the company, most Publix stores will close by 7 p.m. on Christmas Eve. The early closing allows for the employees to go home and spend time with their families. Even if it is just a few extra hours, that time is well-deserved.

In addition, Publix is not open on Christmas Day. Throughout the grocery store’s history, the company has never been open on Christmas Day. It is a tradition that still stands.

Given that Publix has its lights off for the holiday, some people might want to stock up on the favorite foods. From that always popular fried chicken to the subs to everything else that could possibly be on the list, the brand has it covered.

Plus, do not forget to look at some of the weekly ads for the special BOGO deals on favorite foods. From cookies to snacks, there are always satisfying savings on the weekly grocery list.

While Publix will close on Christmas Eve earlier than normal and it will not be open on Christmas Day, shopping at the grocery store is always a pleasure.
