Did you forget something? Whether it’s an extra onion or the whole dang turkey, there are plenty of grocery and convenience stores open on Thanksgiving Day for your last-minute shopping needs. While many stores don’t open until about 6 p.m. on November 25 for the Black Friday madness, there are a few places that will come in clutch for any forgotten details during your big dinner. It should be noted that store hours may vary locally, so it’s always a good idea to call before rushing out.
That’s especially true in 2020 because many stores that have been open on Thanksgiving in the past are opting to keep their doors closed for the full day this year, including BJ’s Wholesale, Costco, Sam’s Club, Target and Walmart. Other stores that won’t open their doors include Aldi, Publix, Trader Joe’s and Winn-Dixie. Still, there will be plenty of grocery options available, just make sure you do your bulk shopping ahead of time.
