Only Toys R Us and Burlington Coat Factory plan to stay open later tonight for last-minute Christmas shopping.
Toys R Us is the only big box store around planning to stay open late tonight for last minute Christmas gifts. Many department stores, along with the giant toy store, actually stayed open through the night on Sunday, allowing shoppers to peruse the aisles at 3 a.m. if that worked for them. Toys R Us will now stay open until 10 p.m. Christmas Eve while the Northshore Mall and even its anchor department stores and Barnes & Noble all close at 6 p.m. Shopping hours are the same over at the Liberty Tree Mall across the way in Danvers. The Burlington Coat Factory up the road on Route 114 will be open until 8 p.m. All retail stores are closed Tuesday on Christmas Day.
