Look, we get it — it’s not ideal, but it definitely happens. Everyone has had that dreaded moment when you go to start cooking and realize you’ve forgotten an important ingredient on Thanksgiving Day.

Don’t fret, there are still some grocery stores that will be open on Thanksgiving Day. Since COVID-19 has us celebrating a little differently this year, we want to urge everyone to bring that same level of precaution to your shopping. Most stores are making that easy by offering curbside pickup and same-day delivery, so definitely check to see if your favorite local store is offering this service, especially if you live in a walkable city. Of course, there’s also Amazon Prime, which will be offering two hour delivery in some cities — make sure you check the Prime Now page to see if you made the list.

Of course, these hours of operation could change between now and Thanksgiving Day, so make sure to call before walking out the door. That said, here is a convenient list of the stores that are currently planning on being open on Thanksgiving Day, as well as their pickup and delivery options.
