Grocery shopping over Christmas holidays: Christmas: Opening hours for supermarkets

Grocery shopping over Christmas holidays : Christmas: Opening hours for supermarkets

Christmas Eve falls on a Thursday this year, which means most supermarkets will still be open on this day. Here are the details on supermarket opening hours in Bonn at Christmas time.

Supermarket aisles get very busy during the Christmas season. This year, Christmas Eve falls on a Thursday. That means customers can still make a quick run to the store on December 24 if they're short on groceries for the holidays. But Thursday is also the last chance for shoppers until supermarkets open up again on Monday.
