Thanksgiving has finally arrived! Today, many of us will be heading out the door to enjoy the holiday surrounded by family and friends, or welcoming them into our homes for a day full of tasty food and treats.
If you’re heading out to a Thanksgiving dinner, you might be planning on bringing a dish or dessert with you but what if time got away and you need to instead rely on something premade? Or perhaps you’re prepping your family’s meal only to discover you forgot an ingredient needed for a particular dish.
Your first instinct might be to head out to the store, but with the holiday you might be wondering if your local Kroger will actually be open for the holiday. After all, many stores will be closed today due to the holiday.
If you’re in need of making a run out to your local Kroger on Thanksgiving you’re in luck. While some retailers such as Walmart and Target will be closed for the holiday, Kroger will be keeping its doors open for shoppers in need of some last-minute ingredients for their dishes.
While Kroger will be open on Thanksgiving this year, the Kroger Thanksgiving hours will be a bit unique and won’t be open during the store’s normal hours. As confirmed by the grocery chain, Kroger stores will be closing at 5 pm local time on Nov. 24, so you’ll want to make sure to head out to your Kroger before 5 p.m. if you’re hoping to pick up any groceries.
While Kroger will be open, allowing shoppers to pick up any ingredients they might need for their Thanksgiving dinners, Kroger Pharmacies will be closed on Nov. 24. As such, you won’t be able to pick up any prescriptions or drop off any prescriptions to be filled on the holiday. So you’ll want to make sure to pick up any prescriptions before Thanksgiving, or you’ll have to hold off on picking them up until Friday.
