What's open Christmas Day 2020? CVS, Starbucks, McDonald's and 7-Eleven make the list but Walmart is closed

Until that year, Christmas was the only day Walmart, the country's largest retailer, closed all of its stores. Walmart kept stores closed on Thanksgiving for the first time since the late 1980s in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Many other retailers, including grocery stores, are also closed on Fridays.

Why so many restaurants with shutters? Christmas is historically a slow day for the industry, according to Womply, a small business software provider. In 2019, only 20% of restaurants were open on vacation.
The national surge in coronavirus cases doesn't help. Womply found that 28% of restaurants nationwide were closed as of December 1.
