While most of us would love to snuggle up with hot cocoa next to a fireplace as the last few days of the year tick by, not everyone will be granted leisure time during the holiday break. There are groceries to buy, Boxing week sales, places to take your family during the break, and getting ready to bring in the new year in style. And some of us actually have to work (hopefully it won’t be too busy).

So if you are heading out and about as 2017 winds down, below is a list of what’s open and closed. Happy holidays and a merry new year!
