Is DSW Open On Christmas Eve? Get Ready For Praise Hands Emojis

If you still need to do some last minute gift shopping or are hoping to snag a new pair of shoes in time for your family's holiday party, fear not! DSW is open on Christmas Eve, ready to cater to all your designer shoe needs with unbeatable prices right up until the festivities begin. However, depending on your location, exact opening hours might vary. Most of the stores will be working within regular business hours from 10 AM to 9 PM.

Based on the multiple NYC locations I called, all DSWs will be open on Christmas Eve, but will probably open a little earlier, close a little earlier, or both. An associate I spoke to at a location in Flatbush informed me that they would be closing at 6 PM, while the Union Square location said that its Christmas Eve hours would be 8 AM to 7 PM with an early opening the day after Christmas as well. The latter is quite perfect if you need to return or exchange a gifted pair of shoes in a hurry for something that fits better or is more your style.

Be sure to call your local DSW to get exact info on its Christmas Eve hours. Though if online shopping is more your thing, you can also take advantage of the store's free shipping on orders of $35 or more. If you order by 11:59 PM on Dec. 20, you will receive your package by Christmas via standard shipping. In the meantime, here are some great holiday shopping ideas that will amend that crappy gift you might receive, or any holiday fashion emergency.
