Before the clock strikes midnight and 2018 is turned into 2019, shoppers around the country will head to stores to make their final purchase of the year. To give employees a chance to ring in the new year with friends and family, some stores will be shuttering their doors early so last-minute shoppers should make a plan to shop before time runs out.

Unlike New Year's Day, which is a federal holiday, New Year's Eve, according to the holiday schedule, is just an ordinary day. However, similarly to Christmas Eve, which is also not a federal holiday, many stores will open and close at different times than their regular business hours.
