Retailers Will Keep the Lights Burning on Christmas Eve


Target, Walmart and other large U.S. retailers have extended their hours on Christmas Eve in an effort to snag last-minute holiday shoppers. It’s a wider net for consumers during a season in which about 17 percent of shoppers last week said they hadn’t starting buying gifts, in a Reuters/Ipsos poll. Walmart will stay open until 8 p.m. Sam’s Club will keep the lights on until 8:30 p.m., Toys ‘R’ Us will go until 9 p.m., and Target’s staff will await gift givers until 11 p.m.
