Hey, Tacoma, wondering what’s open Christmas Day?
Whether you need to grab groceries, make a drugstore run, or get the in laws out of the house-I’ve got you covered!
Here is a brief guide to where to shop, eat, and play on Christmas Day around the greater South Puget Sound. I hope it helps!
If you want to go out to eat you can search via Open Table.com.
Denny’s is also open on Christmas, as are select Ihop’s. This post has a full list of national chains with hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Note that I haven’t verified these, and I would call first, as franchises can set their own hours.
Chinese food is the other usual option!
- If you want to hit a movie, here’s the link to Fandango. Most area theaters are open.
- Zoolights is open this evening.
- Fantasy Lights is also open.
Grocery and Drug Stores Open
Walgreens is open Christmas Day, including pharmacies at most locations. Use the store locator to check yours.
7-11 is open
Fred Meyer, Costco and other local stores are closed.
Safeway is open early in the day. Most locations close around 4PM. I believe the same is true of Albertsons.
Worship Services on Christmas Day.
Celebration Lutheran 2500 Shaw Road Puyallup 10AM with carols and Communion
St.Andrew’s Episcopal Tacoma 10AM carols and communion
