NEW YORK — Last minute holiday shoppers will have some help from Macy’s this year, as the retailer plans keep most of its stores open 48 hours straight the weekend before Christmas, from 7 a.m. Friday, December 21 through 7 a.m. Sunday, December 23.
The 48-hour shopping marathon coincides with Macy’s final scheduled One-Day Sale of the year, which concludes at 7 a.m. Sunday, December 23. While the sale ends Sunday morning, 57 stores will remain open 24 hours or offer extended late hours until close on Christmas Eve.
With Thanksgiving falling on November 22, consumers this year will have a total of 32 shopping days, counting Christmas Eve, and no real excuse for last-minute shopping. But the holiday does have a way of sneaking up on some shoppers, and others simply like the adrenaline rush of a last-minute shopping marathon.
