Several companies stayed open on Christmas holiday - WMC Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

Several companies stayed open on Christmas holiday

(WMC-TV) – Several restaurants stayed open despite the Christmas holiday. 

The Action News 5 crews are not the only ones working on this holiday, but what they found, is that many other industries are beginning to join us working on Christmas.

Kroger is closed on Christmas, but that is where Terry Hermes went hoping to get some last minute ingredients.

Lucky for Hermes, he has several other options – Walgreens, CVS, Ike's… all of which were operating as they do any other day.

There are a growing number of companies staying open on the holidays. 

All 4,300 Starbucks-owned Starbucks locations across the country were serving coffee on Christmas Day.

The company says it prides itself on being a community gathering place.

Starbucks is not the only place people were heading Tuesday morning, though.  IHOP was also open to serve pancakes, waffles, omelets, and whatever anyone else was looking for on Christmas morning.

James Mallard was working at IHOP, grateful to have a job, even if it means working the holidays.

"I'm grateful to be anywhere," he said.  "It's not about taking, it's about giving.
