If you’re planning to shop end-of-the-year, semi-annual sales or use a gift card you got for Christmas on New Year’s Eve, check store hours first.

Semi-annual sales, many which kicked off after Christmas are underway at Victoria’s Secret, Bath & Body Works, Tory Burch and several other stores, including luxury brands. There also Christmas clearance sales.

But many stores will close early Thursday, several hours before the ball drops.

But amid the coronavirus pandemic, expect stores to limit the number of shoppers allowed inside and require masks.

And if you need a Costco or Sam’s Club run before the weekend, remember both wholesale clubs will be closed Friday like on New Year’s Day in past years.

To help plan your shopping down to the minute, here are New Year’s Eve store hours for department stores, discount retailers and other chains. Find grocery store hours here.
