Most stores in East Tennessee have special hours for Christmas Eve.

West Town Mall: 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Target: 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.
Wal-mart: Closing at 8:00 p.m.
K-mart: 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.

We could only find two places to shop for last-second gifts Christmas day.

The 24-hour Walgreens locations and their pharmacies will be open.
CVS will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m, but their pharmacies will be closed.

If you're not cooking Christmas Day, here are a few ideas of where you can eat a good meal.

Smoky Mountain Brewery: 3:30 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.
Cherokee Grill in Gatlinburg: Noon until 10:00 p.m.
Shoney's on Western Avenue: 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.
Ruby Tuesday on Broadway: 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m.
IHOP: hours vary
Calhoun's: 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. or 10:00 p.m.
Waffle House is open on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Some of those store hours could vary from business to business.  It's important you to call the location before you go.
