Macy's open for 48 hours straight in final weekend before Christmas

MILWAUKEE -- Macy's has announced its stores will stay open for 48 hours straight for its last scheduled One Day Sale in the final weekend leading up to Christmas.

Stores will be open beginning Friday, December 21st at 7:00 a.m. through Sunday, December 23rd at 7:00 a.m.

Though the One Day Sale offers will conclude at 7 a.m. on Sunday December 23, Macy’s stores will stay open for business for the remainder of the day – most until midnight.

"For the first time ever, Macy’s will keep most stores open around the clock for the last weekend of holiday shopping, an expansion of our successful marathon that began at select stores in 2006. We hope to make it easy for our customers across the country to finish their shopping at any time of day or night and with the benefit of the great deals and value they count on from our One Day Sale events," Peter Sachse, Macy’s chief stores officer said.

Macy’s began the tradition of keeping its doors open 24 hours with Macy’s Queens Center in 2006.

Macy’s added additional stores in subsequent years, and last year offered customers the opportunity to shop outside regular store hours in 14 locations that were open 24 hours and in 27 locations that offered extended hours.
