If you’ve been putting off all of your Christmas shopping until the very last possible moment, and if those shopping plans include Costco, you should keep their holiday schedule in mind so that you don’t get there to find the doors closed. Costco in the US, UK, Australia, Canada and Spain will be CLOSED on Christmas Day (Thursday, December 25, 2014). If you’re in the UK, Costco will also be CLOSED on Boxing Day (Friday, December 26, 2014) too. Some locations in Canada and Australia are also CLOSED on Boxing Day (check the list below). Costco stores will also be closing early on Christmas Eve (Wednesday, December 24, 2014) at 5 pm or 6 pm. So, if you still need to get a gift or two, or perhaps some wrapping paper and ribbon, or maybe you need to pick up lots of goodies to make your big Christmas dinner, then you’ll need to get to Costco before they close early on Wednesday!
And I’m sure lots of other people will be out doing their last minute shopping as well, so keep that in mind, and try to remain in the holiday spirit. Or maybe, what I should say, is stay in the ideal holiday spirit and not the stressed out and cranky one that you might actually be in if you’re out shopping at the last minute!
Also, if you just want to do your normal shopping, Costco will resume their normal business hours after Christmas or Boxing Day, depending on your location. For the full list of who is open when, I’ve got all the details listed below.
