2018 Walmart Store Hours

Walmart doesn’t have a standard set of opening hours for all its stores. The time Walmart stores are open will vary from location to location. Some are open 24 hours a day, while others have different weekday and weekend hours. The best way to find out the hours of a local Walmart store is to use the official Walmart store locator tool. This will give you the opening hours of each Walmart store.

The above information is general planned information regarding when Walmart stores will be open for business. There can be a variety of incidents which will cause exceptions to the above information. For example, specific stores may close due to damage to the store, and there can be closures due to severe weather as well. It’s always best to call and confirm with your store if you have any doubt about it being open or closed.

    The way things have been going recently, it won’t be too long before Walmart is open all day on Thanksgiving and begins to open on Christmas Day as well. It’s going to be a 24/7 superstore soon.

  • Carol says:

    Walmart, shame on you for being open on Thanksgiving. Everyone has family they need to spend time with. The store should never open on Christmas either. Family first!

    Wal-Mart has always said they respect the individual which is BS the don’t allow vacation during November or December and then they also split your days of during those months to inhibit you even more to spend any time with your family. Then changing the time of you work randomly when the say it will be up three weeks before hand.

  • April says:

    This is no fair. Walmart doesn’t care employee ‘s family. Just think to earn money. How I’m going to pass December 31 workin until 12:30 am and still work January 1st until 12 am, and if I am a new employee part time the pay me regular waste. I worked for thanksgiving and not recognizing nothing. Too bad to work for Walmart
