Hopefully on Thanksgiving we’re all able to celebrate with loved ones, but just in case you need something, here’s a quick list of stores that are open and closed on Thanksgiving geared towards family or home emergencies. So this is a consolidated place if you’re looking for groceries, pet food, plumbing supplies, medicine, or other necessities – I’m not including which furniture stores or toy stores are open or closed. Hope this helps!
Open: Shaws/Star Market, Whole Foods, Kroger, Harris Teeter (until 2PM)
Closed: Menards, Fred Meyers, Aldi, HEB, Publix
Open: CVS (most stores), Walgreens, Rite Aid
Closed: Many in-store pharmacies within grocery stores that are open
Open: Ace Hardware (up to each location, so some will be open and some not)
Closed: Home Depot, Lowes, True Value Hardware
Open: No specific pet stores that I could find, but you could probably get what you needed at a grocery store or Walmart
Closed: Petco, Petsmart
General / all of the above:
Open: Walmart (all day), and a bunch of box stores will be closed during the day on Thursday but open in the evening, such as Target and Sears (opening at 6PM) or Kmart (opening at 7PM).
Closed: Costco, Sam’s Club, BJ’s
Of course, call your local store before heading over – individual stores within a chain may be closed or have different hours than normal.
