We all know what it’s like to forget an important ingredient for a Christmas feast.

Whether it’s cranberry sauce or the custard for your Christmas pudding, many Aussies will be racing to the shops for eleventh-hour purchases.

But there’s no need to panic – TND has compiled the Christmas trading hours for supermarkets around the country.

Hopefully, this list makes the lead-up to the big day a little less stressful.

Woolworths

Woolworths stores across the country will be closed on Christmas Day.

Trading hours on Boxing Day will be largely consistent for the states and territories, excluding a handful of stores.

A Woolworths representative told The New Daily that customers should check opening hours for their local stores by visiting the website.

Coles

Generally speaking, all Coles stores across the country will be closed on Christmas Day and open on other days.

Coles has provided detailed trading hours for various states, territories and regional areas.

Opening and closing times may differ from normal at some stores. You can check the Coles website for individual store trading hours.

Aldi

An Aldi spokesperson told The New Daily that stores across the country would be closed on Christmas Day.

Store trading hours will vary on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day and the December 27 public holiday.
