Nearly Every Starbucks Will Be Open for the Holidays — What About Yours?

Get the scoop on Starbucks' holiday hours.

    Starbucks needs no introduction — the ubiquitous coffee franchise can be found all over the world. With its seasonal rotation of themed products heralding the oncoming holiday season, you might be wondering if your nearest Starbucks will be changing its hours for the holidays.

    Here’s what you’ll find in this guide to Starbucks’ hours on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Years as well as seasonal beverages and products:

    Starbucks Holiday Hours

    Although some Starbucks locations are open 365 days a year, not all are. For those locations that are open year-round, the company does not keep a universal holiday schedule. So if you’re asking yourself, “Is Starbucks open on Christmas Day?,” the answer is that Starbucks’ holiday store hours vary by location. As the holidays approach, stores will update their hours, a rep confirmed through a customer service chat. Call your local Starbucks store directly to find its exact holiday hours.

    Starbucks Holiday Help

    Starbucks help is available seven days a week, from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m. PST. You can reach customer service at 800-Starbuc (800-782-7282). Live chat is also an option. But note that the customer contact center will be closed on Christmas and New Year’s Day. Even so, that doesn’t mean your local store won’t feature its very own Starbucks Christmas hours.
