By Christmas Eve, even most procrastinators have tucked their gifts safely under the tree. But every year, there are those true last-minute shoppers who wake up Christmas morning with the dreaded feeling that they forgot something.

If Santa doesn't hit your house overnight to fill in where you left off, you can't count on your local supermarket to be open Christmas Day. Most Waldbaums, Stop & Shop, ShopRite and King Kullen locations will be closed, but don't fret! Here are some quick places you can sneak to while your loved ones are still in their cookie- and wine-induced comas. We won't tell. (Note: Store hours may vary by location.)
