It’s Christmas Day. The list of stores open today is pretty short.
Of course, all government offices and the library are closed. And there is no mail service.
Don't fret, though. A few stores are open if you need a few last-minute supplies, such as batteries, or you're feeling a little under the weather with a cold.
You can also get a hot coffee or pastry if you don’t mind driving across the bridge to Warren or up to Providence. You can fill up your tank with gas for that trip to grandma's house.
You can get some Chinese take-out if you don’t want to eat another piece of turkey or prime rib or stuffed shrimp.
Here are a few places that are open today:
CVS/Pharmacy: 640 Warren Ave., open 24 hours.
Dunkin' Donuts:2371 Pawtucket Ave., 6 am to noon.
Shell Station: 2200 Pawtucket Ave., open 24 hours.
Willett Avenue Xtra Mart: 973 Willett Ave., Riverside. Open 24 hours.
