PRLog - Dec. 24, 2012 - EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Christmas is tomorrow, which means most stores will be closed so employees can spend the day with family and friends in celebration. For consumers who are in need of extremely last-minute gifts or Christmas dinner ingredients, however, finding the stores open on Christmas day could make or break the holiday. Personal finance site Go Banking Rates surveyed popular retailers and restaurants to find out which ones plan to stay open, so readers who may need to make Christmas day purchases know where to go.

Casey Bond, managing editor of Go Banking Rates, explains, "Many consumers will find that they forgot that one important purchase that needs to be made on Christmas day, and it's very helpful to know which retailers plan to keep their doors open on December 25."
"Not to mention," Ms. Bond continues, "IHOP consistently remains the most popular destination for eating out on Christmas morning – and they reportedly plan to be open on Christmas Day again this year."
