It’s that time of year again, when every business thinks it is cool to just close up shop early because it’s the holiday season. It can be a total pain to go to your usual spot, just to find they are shut down. Thanks to an addition inside of Google Maps and Google Search, holiday hours for virtually every business you can imagine are now available for viewing. 

Google notes that if the business’ holiday hours are listed, a warning box will appear, letting you know that the hours may be inaccurate. Of course, if the business is closed, a filter for “Open Now” will show you related businesses that are in fact open to take your money.

This change is happening automatically on all Android devices, so make a mental note of it.

Now, go forth and shop.
