IF you’re in need of an extra boost after all the Christmas celebrations, grabbing a takeout coffee is one way to go.
But caffeine fiends will have to keep an eye on store opening times, as they may vary over Boxing Day.
Costa is yet to confirm which stores it will be opening and closing, but last year this varied between branches.
To avoid walking away empty handed, we’d recommend checking Costa’s store checker to see if your local one is open before making a trip.
What are Costa’s opening hours for Boxing Day until New Year?
On Boxing Day last year, hours were shorter than usual.
We don’t have a full list of opening times for this year, but hours will be shorter again – some will close at 4pm, while others will shut at their usual 8pm.
For example, Costa’s Argyll Street branch will open at the usual time, but close a little later than usual at 6pm.
What are Costa’s opening hours on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day?
For those who might have partied a little too hard bringing 2021 in, getting their Costa fix might have to wait a little longer than usual.
Last year, branches opened later and closed earlier than usual, including a branch in Manchester which shut early on New Year’s Eve at 5pm instead of 9pm, and opened later than usual on New Year’s Day at 9am instead of 6am.
It looks like the same is happening again this year. For example, Costa’s Argyll Street store is closing at 7pm on New Year’s Eve instead of its usual 8pm.

Did Costa Coffee open on Christmas Day?
Hours varied from store to store over Christmas day, with some open on reduced hours and others closed completely.
For example, Costa’s Argyll Street branch in Oxford Circus, London, is usually open from 6am until 8pm, but closed at 6pm on Christmas Eve and remained shut on Christmas Day.
In previous years, the majority of Costa stores were closed on Christmas Day too.
