So, you've said goodbye to 2021, made your resolutions, watched a few favorite New Year's movies, had a delicious New Year's brunch (and, okay, even indulged in some leftover Christmas candy). As you look ahead to 2022 you probably have one immediate question on your mind: "What stores are open on New Year's Day?"
We often ask ourselves the same thing, which is why we've taken the time to compile the below list of all the stores that'll be opening their doors on the first day of the year. If you feel like ringing up a few items at the store after ringing in 2022, we won't judge you; after all, a bit of shopping is necessary in order to prepare for a month of self-improvement. In fact, it's practically a New Year's tradition! Groceries for a month of healthy dinners? Check! Yoga mats and workout equipment? Check and check!
Here, you'll find a list of grocery store chains, restaurants, and other chains along with all the information currently available about their New Year's Eve and New Year's Day 2022 operating hours. Whether you want to grab a coffee at Starbucks, do a few errands at Walmart, or just wander the aisles at Target, here's where you can expect to kick off the new year:
