What Stores Will Be Open on Thanksgiving Day?


As Thanksgiving Day feasts are being prepared and served, many people’s thoughts are already turning to Black Friday deals. While the official start to holiday shopping has shifted from a weekend-long event to a weeks-long affair beginning in October, the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 forced stores to close on Thanksgiving Day, a trend that will continue into 2021. Some stores, on the other hand, are staying open and welcoming customers who are hoping to get a head start on their holiday shopping or who need to pick up something for Thanksgiving dinner. Given that Thanksgiving is a busy travel day, travelers will be relieved to learn that 7-Eleven is open, allowing them to grab a quick snack while filling up their tank. Several supermarkets and drugstores, including CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens, will be open this Thanksgiving, though it is important to note that while most locations will be open during regular hours, most pharmacies will be closed. Dollar General, Dollar Tree, and Family Dollar are all open on Thursday, albeit with shorter hours, with Dollar General open as early as 1 a.m. from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. Outdoor enthusiasts can also visit Bass Pro and Cabela’s, which both opened at 9 a.m. Big Lots (7 a.m.) is another store open on Thanksgiving Day. until 9 p.m. m.), Cumberland Farms, Game Stop (location-specific hours), and Wawa. Those who live in Maine, Massachusetts, or Rhode Island, on the other hand, will be out of luck if they need to run to the store for a last-minute Thanksgiving dinner item or want to get a head start on Black Friday shopping. Due to state laws, stores in those states are closed on Thanksgiving Day. Target is one of the many stores that will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. The retailer announced on Monday, just in time for all of those family gatherings, that it had decided to close permanently not only for this Thanksgiving, but for all future Thanksgivings as well. “What started as a temporary measure driven by the pandemic is now our new standard – one that recognizes our ability to deliver on our guests’ holiday wishes both within and well beyond store hours,” Target CEO Brian Cornell wrote in an email to employees. “Don’t worry if this is the last Thanksgiving you’ll spend with family and friends for a while,” Cornell continued, “because Thanksgiving store hours are one thing we won’t ‘get back to’ when the pandemic finally subsides.” ” Target will be open on Black Friday, though the retailer’s Black Friday deals have already started.
