Target, Walmart & 14 Other Stores Open on New Year's Day

by Maressa Brown

target registersWhile you're recovering from watching the ball drop and ringing in 2014, you might find yourself needing to go shopping for a staple or two. Or maybe even craving some retail therapy and wanting to snag your first bargain of the year! Of course retailers know that, and that's why many of them are open today (albeit, perhaps with abbreviated hours), in spite of federal offices, the postal service, the stock market, and banks being closed.

Here, a list of stores you can expect to be open and closed on New Year's Day ....

Most convenience and grocery stores should be open, with few exceptions:

CVS: Most stores will be open during regular business hours. Call 1-800-SHOP-CVS to find out if the CVS near you will be open.

Publix: Stores located in the following Florida counties will open at 7 a.m.: Broward, Dade, Indian River, Martin, Monroe, Okeechobee, Palm Beach, St. Lucie, and Palm Beach. All other stores open at regular hours. Many stores will close at 7 p.m.; stores in select areas will close later. Please call your store to confirm their operating hours. (Store locator.)

Rite Aid: Should be open regular business hours. (Store locator.)

Walgreens: 24-hour stores will operate on normal business hours.


  • Other national chains that WILL be open:

Barnes & Noble: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (some locations open even later).

Nope.  One of my goals for the new year is to put more money in savings and that's hard to do when I'm out shopping all the time.

Heck no to the shopping.  It's snowing hard out.  Roads are slick.   We stopped at Walmart last night after we ate dinner out.  I needed a few things before the snow hit.

Can't go anywhere until I get stickers in my car, and can't do that until I get paid. It will cost almost 2000 to fix it, I will just get another car at tax time cuz I know my car isn't even worth 2000. Happy new year to me lol
