Swing by your local CVS store on during the holidays  and you’ll be greeted by a well-lit store and a parking lot with at least a few cars in it — as long as you visit during regular business hours. Yes, CVS will be open every day throughout the holiday season — including Christmas Day — with some stores staying open 24 hours.

What this means for you is that you’ll have a backup plan if you need to buy last-minute gifts, party supplies or snacks. However, hours may vary from store to store, so make sure your nearest CVS is open before you head out.  

Here’s a quick look at everything you want to know about CVS’ hours this holiday season:
