On Thanksgiving, are Walmart, Target, or Kroger open?
We’re only a few hours away from the start of the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. If you wait until Thursday to buy your ingredients, your options are more constrained if you still need to go grocery shopping before preparing your family’s customary feast.
Walmart and Target, two of the biggest food retailers in the nation, will be closed on Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving, Kroger will keep its doors open at least until mid-afternoon.
For the third consecutive Thanksgiving, Walmart will be closed.
One of the large retailers that used to be open on Thanksgiving was Walmart. But as Heavy reported at the time, the chain started to turn around in 2020.
For the third consecutive Thanksgiving, Walmart will be closed. Walmart reminded customers that they could still shop for Black Friday deals online while stores were closed on the website’s home page.
