Don't get caught out when shops close during the festive season.

The festive season is upon, and with Christmas less than a week away it's a race against the clock for shoppers looking to stock up on food, drinks and last-minute gift ideas. With this year's holidays falling on weekdays, Aussies across the country can look forward to two long weekends beginning with the Christmas and Boxing Day weekend, which extends to a Tuesday, and the New Year's Day weekend which includes a Monday.

For those who want to be well-prepared and make sure they don't miss out, here's the rundown of holiday trading hours at the country's top retailers by state.
