Holiday hours: Here’s what’s open in Eastlake on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day

The Christmas holiday is upon us and many Eastlake businesses will be closed. Since the holiday is on a Sunday, many businesses have chosen to also be closed on Saturday, Christmas Eve, in addition to Christmas Day. 

If you need supplies or want to go out for a meal or a drink, your best bet is to do it on Saturday. Two businesses (Eastlake Bar and Grill and the Eastlake Zoo) will be open on Christmas Day and one (Flower Lady) may be.

If I’ve missed your business, please add your hours and details to the comments.

Have a happy holiday!
