Prepare for Thanksgiving with this quick guide on what’s open and closed this holiday. Whether you’re in need of last-minute groceries, planning to grab a quick bite, or thinking about some holiday shopping, here’s what you need to know.
Some major players like Costco and Target are taking a break on Thursday, but fear not – options abound. Kroger and Big Lots keep their doors open, although some have reduced hours. According to industry experts, this shift reflects changing consumer habits and a nod to employee well-being.
Walmart is giving its associates a break, with all stores closed on Thanksgiving. Similarly, Target and Ross are following suit, keeping their doors shut this year on the holiday.
Costco and Sam’s Club won’t be luring shoppers in on Thanksgiving either. Meanwhile, Home Depot and Lowe’s are also taking a pause.
Ace Hardware stores, being independently owned, have varying hours, but many will join the Thanksgiving closure trend, according to the company.
Most CVS stores keep regular hours for those needing some pharmacy items, and the same is true for Walmart Pharmacy. But it’s wise to check for local variations. For the first time in its history, Walgreens is closing most locations on Thanksgiving, with 24-hour stores being the exception.
Remember, the U.S. Postal Service won’t deliver mail on Thursday, but fear not – normal operations resume on Friday. UPS and FedEx stores are also closed on Thanksgiving, and no packages will arrive to you on Thursday. Operations return to normal on Friday for both.
If you’re in banking mode, major banks like Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Capital One, Citibank, PNC, and Truist are closing their branches on Thanksgiving. However, Friday sees them back in business as usual.
Stay informed by checking your local store or restaurant online before heading out – hours and closures can vary. Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks, and knowing what’s open and closed makes planning your day a breeze. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
