Christmas is the one day of year that the nation’s largest retailer, Walmart, closes all of its locations and several regional and national stores also follow suit.

But all hope isn’t lost.

Your mileage may vary on how far you’ll have to drive for any forgotten items but drug stores including CVS and Walgreens will be open on the holiday. So will several convenience stores including 7-Eleven, Wawa and Cumberland Farms.

Many major restaurant chains also will be closed Wednesday but many Starbucks, McDonald’s and Dunkin’ locations will be open, along with IHOP, Denny’s and Waffle House.
