Last-Minute Holiday Shopping: Stores with Christmas Eve pickup and hours

The shipping deadlines have all passed and Christmas is less than 24 hours away. Fear not — you can still get your shopping done on time thanks to in-store pickup. Below you'll find a list of national and regional click-and-mortar stores that will let you shop online and pickup your gifts later today. Keep in mind that closing times for each store may vary, so we recommend giving your local store a call (or checking its hours online) before placing any orders. Also, it's worth keeping these pointers in mind before heading out to the store:
  • Print and bring your confirmation email, receipt, or order number
  • bring valid ID and the credit card you used for your purchase
  • don't wait in line if you don't have to — look for an in-store pickup kiosk or desk once you've arrived
