Used to buy groceries in large malls - we will tell you how Pyaterochka and Magnit work during the New Year holidays and whether it will be possible to purchase goods in these supermarkets on January 1, 2023.

New Year's schedule

On New Year's Eve (from December 21 to December 31, 2023), all large retail chains will work in an enhanced mode, while offering a wide variety of promotions and discounts. Such changes are traditionally taken in the last days of the outgoing year so that buyers can purchase everything necessary for organizing the New Year.

Of course, there is a second reason - by extending the working day during periods of mass purchases of food products, supermarkets make super profits. On the 31st, most retail chains close earlier than usual so that store employees can get home on time and celebrate the holiday with their families. Of course, this decision is influenced not so much by concern for the staff as by statistics - after 10:00 on New Year's Eve there are almost no buyers in the trading floors, which means that it makes no sense for the owner to overpay for the work of employees on New Year's Eve.

Important! For most, 12/31/22 will be a non-working day, as it falls on a Saturday. But moststores will operate as usual throughout the day and will continue to sell goods until 10:00 pm on average. At the same time, it should be taken into account that some malls will close at 21:00, and some at 23:00.

To understand how Pyaterochka, Magnit, Metro, Perekrestok and other popular retail chains work on the 31st, you should read the information provided on their official websites.

Alcohol sales

Important! On the territory, the sale of alcoholic beverages is officially prohibited from 23:00 to 08:00, but in some regions, by decision of local authorities, this period has been somewhat extended.

Region Crimea Mordovia Sakha Tatarstan
Prohibition hours
23:00 - 10:00
22:00 - 10:00
20:00 - 14:00
17:00 - 10:00 on weekends and holidays

We recommend that you find out in advance how the Pyaterochka store located near your home works on December 31, 2023 and January 1, 2023. Information about upcoming changes in opening hours will be posted at the entrance to the hypermarket in advance.

Work schedule 1January

On Sunday, 01.01.23, large malls will open much later than on regular business days. There is a logical explanation for this decision:

    1. After the New Year celebrations, people usually go shopping no earlier than 10 am and early opening is simply not economically viable.
    2. Employees who celebrated the holiday at home need to get to work, and on the first day of the New Year, transport does not run well in all cities.

    Despite the fact that many are not averse to strolling through hypermarkets on January 1, almost all home appliance stores and boutiques, as well as some shopping centers, will declare this day a day off, providing additional rest for their employees. In 2023, on the first day of the year, they will definitely not accept buyers:

    • Auchan;
    • Globe;
    • Leroy Merlin.

    In order not to ask the difficult question of what time Pyaterochka, Magnet or Perekrestok work on January 1, 2023, remember a simple rule - on the first day of the year you should not go shopping before 13:00.

    So far, the work schedules of only some large retail chains are known:

    Trade network Pyaterochka Magnet Alcomarket-Magnit Metro Crossroads
    Beginning of work 01.01.23

    It is worth considering that many storesset their own hours of operation, and the schedules presented for them are only recommended. For example, many stores of the Magnit network, representing the U Doma format, will open on January 1 at 10:00 am, and some large trading floors of megacities will continue to work 24/7, without interrupting customer service even at midnight.

    Christmas holidays period

    If on January 1, 2023 it is worth going shopping only in the afternoon, then the question of how the Pyaterochka or Magnit store works from January 2 to January 10 is easier to answer - all large shopping centers during the New Year holidays sell food and non-food items as per regular schedule.

    All hypermarkets of large corporations, such as the owner of Pyaterochka X5 Group, will operate at their usual pace starting from 01/02/23. The only problem that buyers may face during the New Year holidays is controversial issues, the solution of which will require contacting the bank. As a rule, all major banks close their branches during the New Year holidays. Customers can get support using the online application, by calling the hotline or by visiting the emergency department (these will traditionally be organized in big cities and major metropolitan areas).
