Walmart will be closing early this Christmas Eve 2016. The retailer announced that it will close at 6 p.m. this Saturday, instead of the usual 8 p.m. they did the past years.
“Our associates work hard all year to make this holiday season special for our customers, and we truly appreciate what they do every day,” said Judith McKenna, chief operating officer for Walmart’s U.S. unit. “We also know that getting home on Christmas Eve to spend time with families is important. That’s why this year we’ll be closing at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.”
