If you chronically forget the whipped cream or cranberry sauce, or if you can’t resist a last minute run to the store, this list is for you!
As always, you’ll want to quickly check with the location nearest you, just to make sure it’s not the outlier that doesn’t participate in holiday hours.
First of all, here are the chains you can cross right off your list, because they are CLOSED for Thanksgiving 2022:
- Trader Joe’s
- Sam’s Club
If you need one simple item, you might try a convenience store, like the little markets attached to many QT gas stations. Otherwise, give one of these a go. For your convenience, the links go to each chain’s store locator page.
