Shoppers flock to stores on 'Panic Saturday' ahead of Christmas

While the holiday season is a great time to enjoy some time off, it can be a pain if you are looking to finish some last minute Christmas shopping or need a few things for your holiday meals.

Select stores include LCBOs at King and Spadina, Carlton and Church and Front and Jarvis. Central Market closes at 8 p.m. Many shoppers are wanting to know if Costco is open on Christmas Eve 2018.

This Saturday before Christmas is widely known as 'Super Saturday, ' the largest shopping day of the year, following Black Friday. All stores across the nation will be closed on Christmas Day so employees can celebrate with their families.
