Is Publix Open On Christmas 2021?

If you live in the Southern United States, you've likely familiar with the grocery store chain Publix. The first store opened in Florida in 1930, and now you can find locations in Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, according to Publix's website. They have over 1200 locations — with around 850 supermarkets in Florida alone — and are continuing to grow, according to their corporate website.

Publix isn't just a big grocery chain, it's also the largest in the world to be owned by employees, according to NCEO

If you're preparing for the holiday festivities, you may be wondering if your favorite grocery store chain will be open for Christmas. After all, with the increased stress that comes with so many Christmas events, the last thing most people want to worry about and deal with is whether they can pick up all their groceries when it's convenient for them. If you have a Publix nearby, you'll want to know their Christmas schedule so you know if you can run out to grab last-minute ingredients or not.

You can do your Christmas grocery shopping at Publix

There's so much shopping to be done during the holiday season, like buying gifts for family and friends, colleagues, and maybe even your neighbor. And then of course, there's plenty of planning for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day celebrations. If you prefer to buy the day before or day off, your shopping endeavors will require some thinking ahead. The good news is Publix is open on Christmas Eve until 7 p.m. according to Delish, so you'll have plenty of time to do all your grocery shopping — or if you've realized that you forgot a few items, you can quickly pick them up. 

However, if you notice that you didn't pick up an ingredient and need to run to the grocery store on Christmas Day, you won't be able to shop at Publix. Stores will be closed so employees can enjoy time with their families and friends. So if you live near a Publix, try to get all your grocery shopping in by Christmas Eve at the latest.
