Remember when you could assume every store was closed on Thanksgiving? Welp, times have (thankfully) changed. There are plenty of businesses that keep their doors locked for the holiday, but others are now open for some or all of their regular hours on Turkey Day. Whether you agree with the decision to staff stores on a national holiday or not, it's good to know what's available in case you do need to run out for a quick item or forget a key ingredient for your family feast. Hey, we've all been there. Below, you'll find which chains are open on Thanksgiving and which most definitely are not.
Before you head out, be sure to double-check with your local store about its hours of operation (it can vary state by state), or you might be the only one in the parking lot.
