If you’ve still got some names on your Christmas list, there are still places left for desperate shoppers, at least part of the time.
And if you want to enjoy Christmas Eve lunch or dinner out, there are a few options as well.
The mall, of course, is a procrastinator’s default. It is open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve. And major stores in the Cool Springs area, like Bed, Bath and Beyond and Barnes and Noble will be open as well.
Target stores near Brentwood, in Franklin and in Spring Hill are planning to be open late on Christmas Eve, as will Kohls stores.
Walmart stores will be open until 6 p.m.
If you prefer locally owned stores, a few shops will be open, most will close early.
Restaurants will be easier to find. The A.Marshall restaurants, Puckett’s Gro., Puckett’s Boathouse and Scout’s Pub will be open.
McCreary’s Pub in Franklin is not only open, they’ll also be featuring Celtic music from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Fulin’s in Spring Hill will be open normal hours, as will the Fulin’s near Brentwood.
The new Pork Belly Farmhouse in Nolensville will be open normal hours as well.
