ATLANTA, Dec. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HoneyBaked, the premium holiday food retailer, has announced extended operating hours for shoppers looking for last minute holiday meal solutions. Nearly 400 store locations are open Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Christmas Eve from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. All locations are closed Christmas Day and hours may vary by location.
"For the last 50 years, we have learned how our customers plan their holiday meals," said Maggie DeCan, HoneyBaked* COO. "Since store visits typically pick up three to five days before Christmas, our extended hours offer flexibility and convenience that help make holidays stress-free. After all, if we can provide a delicious, quality meal that gives our customers more time to spend with family and loved ones during the holidays, then we have done our job."
HoneyBaked has not only extended its hours, but has also hired nearly 6,500 seasonal employees across the country to fill more than two million orders of an anticipated 21 million pounds of ham and turkey. Shoppers still have time to purchase signature Honey Baked Hams, Turkey Breasts, delicious sides and desserts to complete any holiday dinner.
HoneyBaked stores make holiday meals easy and delicious by selecting only the leanest, most flavorful moist and tender bone-in half hams you'll find anywhere – without any added water or juices. Often imitated but never replicated, Honey Baked Hams are fully cooked, ready to serve and available in any size.
HoneyBaked also offers a variety of heat-and-serve side dishes. Sweet Potato Souffle, Green Bean Casserole and Cinnamon Apple Slices are family favorites. Other irresistible treats include Apple Pie, Pecan Pie, Red Velvet Cake and more. Items vary by store, so check with your local HoneyBaked location for availability.
