All the grocery stores open (and closed) on Thanksgiving

Albertsons, Safeway, Wegmans and other supermarket chains open for business on Turkey Day.

It’s a fact of life: Sometimes things just don’t go as planned.

And Murphy’s Law? Well, it always seems to take effect at the worst time possible. Say, for example, Thanksgiving Day.

It’s the morning of, you’ve got 20 people heading over for dinner and someone forgot to pick up green beans for the casserole. Obviously, you simply can’t make the popular Thanksgiving side dish without them. Of course, you can always pivot and make another holiday recipe, but if it's essential, a trip to the grocery store may be in order.

Once upon a time, it would be next to impossible to find a grocer open on the holiday and, well, you’d just be out of luck. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case, and there are plenty of grocery stores open on Thanksgiving to ensure that the once-a-year event goes off without a hitch.

Even better? We’ve gathered them all together (a little Thanksgiving humor right there) to save you the time and trouble of looking them all up yourself.

This comprehensive list includes open grocery chains from coast to coast, along with pharmacies, convenience stores and all the grocers that’ll be closed for the holiday, too.

That way, you can spend Turkey Day enjoying all your favorite Thanksgiving traditions with loved ones — and that’s something something everyone can be thankful for this year.
