While most major pharmacies are open on New Year’s Day, you may find that the actual pharmacy counter may be closed. This is true for many grocery stores and other major retailers with in-house pharmacies too.

With this in mind, you may want to have your prescriptions refilled before the holiday, if possible. If you need to have a prescription filled on January 1, check with your local pharmacy to confirm their New Year’s Day hours.
