Although most stores closed their doors on or before Christmas Eve, a few stores will be open on Christmas Day for those who need to pick up last-minute gifts.

Some local Walgreens locations have hours from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Christmas Day, while some CVS locations will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Despite the availability - even if it's limited - of last-minute shopping, many shoppers said they would rather relax on Christmas Day.

"I think I'm just about finished," said Victoria Wilburn of Huntington. "If not, there's always the day after Christmas."

Prospective Christmas Day shoppers should call ahead to stores to find out about hours for the specific location, as hours may vary.
