Retailers open late on Christmas Eve

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- If you're looking for a place where you can do some last minute shopping, you might be in luck.

Several large retailers are staying open late tonight. That's because Christmas Eve falls on a Saturday this year. Some stores are even open up until ten PM, hoping to lure in last minute shoppers needing a quick gift. Shoppers say it's a major help to have stores open later during this hectic time of year.

"Sometimes you don't get wrapped until just before and then you realize you missed a relative that you didn't know was coming or something, so it's good to have them open," says Shopper Becki Segura.

Here are some of the extended hours: Target stores will remain open until nine tonight. Toys R Us plans to remain open until ten. Wal-Mart will keep their normal hours. However some stores are closing early; Costco and Best Buy will be closing at six.

So make sure you check the store hours before you head out.
