Is Walmart open today? Walmart hours today are regular for the most part, though it is best to check with your local store to see exactly when they plan on closing. In general, it seems that most plan to shut down on New Year’s Eve around 6 p.m.

Walmart is the largest retailer in the world with more than 11,000 stores in 27 countries. More than 2 million people work for Walmart globally. Walmart is open every day, except select holidays.

Walmart Hours of Operation

The company prides itself on being open for customers when other stores are not. On weekdays, the customer service department is open 24 hours a day through the online feedback form found on their website. Home office customer service is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., CST. To reach a customer service department at the store level, call between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.

Walmart Holiday Hours

The only major holiday Walmart closes is on Christmas. On Christmas Eve, Walmart closes at 8 p.m., whatever the local time is. Additional holidays during which Walmart limits holiday hours include Thanksgiving, New Year’s Day, and Easter.

Boxing Week Shopping at Walmart

Some of the best deals of the year happen during Boxing Week. It used to be a single day of sales, Boxing Day, but it has in recent years turned into a week-long opportunity to save big time on most items.

Many people have received gift cards and money for Christmas and want to purchase items at a discounted price. Walmart has a Boxing Week sale going on until they close stores on December 31. The sale is happening in stores and online as well.

Didn’t get what you wanted for Christmas? Have something you have been saving up for? Now is a great time to check out your local Walmart to see if that item is on sale. There are some good deals on electronics, including televisions and home audio theater systems to make your viewing experience all that more spectacular.

Or do what some people do and start buying gifts for those on your list for next Christmas. Wrapping paper is always a major score after the holidays, so stock up on that for sure.
