Photo by Tom Rivers – McDonalds is open today in Albion from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. A few other businesses are open as well.

A rare sight at the Walmart Supercenter today: no cars in the parking lot. The store in Albion is usually open 24-7, but took today off.

ALBION – I thought just about all businesses shut down on Christmas. But there are a few stores open in Albion today: the gas stations, Rite Aid and McDonalds.

McDonalds has been advertising on its sign for about a month that it would be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. today.

Rite Aid didn’t make a big splash about its Christmas hours, but the store is open from 9 to 5 today.

If you’re a last-second shopping procrastinator or if you want a quick bite to eat on the road, I guess you have some options.
