5 Places Open on Christmas Day in Royal Oak

Malls, government offices and most businesses are closed Dec. 25, but there are still a few places that will be open around town.

If you end up forgetting a key ingredient for Christmas dinner (we hear butter is a hot item on Christmas day) or are looking to get out of the house, here are five places that are open on Christmas Day.

1. CVS

Most CVS stores are open Christmas Day, but there is no guarantee that you will be able to fill a prescription. CVS is the spot to pick up a holiday card, pet food or other must-have item when just about everything else is closed.

2. Walgreens

The Walgreens at 1815 Rochester Rd. will be open on Christmas Day. The store's number one seller on Christmas? Butter.

3. Starbucks

The Starbucks located at 31105 Woodward Ave. in Royal Oak will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Christmas Day. There's a decidedly different atmosphere: more laid back, quiet even, as folks read newspapers, pore over their laptops or sit quietly to savor the day.  

4. 7-Eleven

The convenience store becomes the ultra spot for convenience Christmas Day. On the way to Grandma's house, you can also pick up some last-minute items, from Advil to Gatorade. The 7-Eleven at 1121 N. Campbell is open 24 hours on Christmas Day.

5. Movie Theaters

Many people make a trip to the movie theater on Christmas Day. Check out Emagine Royal Oak and the Main Art Theatre for Christmas Day movie showtimes.

What's closed on Christmas

Most Royal Oak businesses are closed Dec. 25, as are government offices, banks, malls and the post office. Refuse collection will be delayed one day due to the holiday.

Most retailers will reopen Dec. 26 and are expecting one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
