You might also want to check your local store’s social media page, since some are offering specials unique to their location all month long. For example, Chick-fil-A The Pinnacle (at 360 Pinnacle Parkway in Bristol, Tennessee) is offering a free chocolate chunk cookie with every holiday ornament purchase through December 31.
The Saratoga Blvd. Chick-fil-A in Corpus Christi, Texas, even made a special video wishing you a merry Christmas. The same location is also offering two medium waffle fries free when you order one 30-count of chicken nuggets every Tuesday from 3-5 p.m. through December (dine-in, carry-out, and drive-through only.)
In summary, all Chick-fil-A restaurant locations are closed on Christmas Day 2020. But they will all reopen on December 26. You’ll want to check your closest location for hours and any specials they might be offering.
