No matter how much planning you do to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner, you will most likely forget something. We’re not just talking about food. It could be toilet paper, more wine, or maybe you don’t have anymore butter (I can’t tell you how often this happens to people). Well you are in luck cause some grocery stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day so you can grab any of your last-minute items to complete your meal.
Every location will have different hours of operation, so make sure to call your local store.
