 Haven’t picked up the bubbly yet?

Procrastinators planning to make a special New Year’s Eve meal and toast in 2021 are running out of time.

Many of the nation's grocery stores – including Trader Joe’s, Costco and Publix – will close hours before the ball drops New Year’s Eve. Others stores follow regular hours Thursday or close a few hours earlier.

Stores are expected to be crowded Thursday as more people are expected to celebrate at home. Many restaurants also will have special hours Thursday.

According to a survey of 1,000 consumers by Suzy, a real-time market research platform, 84% of American adults say they plan to stay home New Year’s Eve.
