If you have a Costco membership, it can be a great place to shop around the holiday season. Not only can you stock up on matching pajamas and presents for the kids, but you can also get deals on all your favorite holiday snacks. Costco's 44-count cookie box? Yes, please!

That being said, you'll want to take advantage of Costco's deals and seasonal products early, both for the sake of your sanity and product availability. According to Yahoo News, for instance, many seasonal products are not restocked once they sell out. So if you're shopping at Costco and you see a holiday item you like, you should probably buy it right then and there, rather than risk it going out of stock before your next visit.

But the biggest reason to get your Costco shopping out of the way early is the chain's altered hours. Many stores close for holidays like Christmas, and that can leave you grasping at straws if you aren't prepared. So... is Costco open on Christmas Day?

Don't wait until the last minute to do your Costco Christmas shopping

The holidays are a time for family — and yes, this extends to the heroes who work in the retail and fast-food industries. As such, some stores will be open on Christmas Day, such as 7-Eleven, Starbucks, CVS, Speedway, and Albertsons, but with limited hours, per Parade.

Although there are of course exceptions, most stores will be closed for the holiday, including Costco, per the chain's website. According to Good Housekeeping, other stores closed on Christmas Day include Kroger, Trader Joe's, Target, Publix, Walmart, and Whole Foods.

So, there you have it. For last-minute shopping on Christmas Day, you won't be able to stop in at Costco and grab a $5 rotisserie chicken (how great of a white elephant gift would that be, though?). You can, however, stop in on Christmas Eve to do some shopping, but you should check your store's hours to be sure it will be open. Many stores will be closing early, and you don't want to show up after the doors are shut.
