Walmart Trims its Christmas Eve Hours
NEW YORK -- Christmas Eve will begin a couple of hours earlier for Walmart workers this year. The nation's largest retailer announced it will close at 6 p.m. this Saturday. In recent years it has closed at 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve. "Our associates work hard all year to make this holiday season special for our customers, and we truly appreciate what they do every day," said Judith McKenna, chief operating officer for Walmart's U.S. unit. "We also know that getting home on Christmas Eve to spend time with families is important. That's why this year we'll be closing at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve."
