Here’s when grocery stores in Dallas-Fort Worth close on Thanksgiving

Tip: Hispanic and Asian specialty grocery stores such as Fiesta Mart, 99 Ranch and El Rancho Supermercado are open on Thanksgiving.

When and if grocery stores are open on Thanksgiving Day is a bigger deal this year, because the largest Dallas-Fort Worth area grocer, Walmart, won’t be open.

The pandemic changed Walmart’s view on holiday hours. Prior to last year, Walmart had always been open on Thanksgiving Day. Target also will be closed on Thanksgiving — a decision it’s making permanent.

Plus, availability is an issue this year. Who hasn’t seen the random empty shelves in recent weeks?

Aldi is also closed on Thanksgiving and will reopen at 9 a.m. on Friday.

So here’s where you can get your last-minute ingredients on Thursday:

  • Grocery stores are operating at normal hours other than on Thanksgiving Day. Most ethnic-focused specialty grocery stores are open.
  • Kroger stores will close at 5 p.m. Kroger fuel centers will close at 4 p.m. Stores reopen at the regular time on Friday at 6 a.m.
  • Tom Thumb and Albertsons are open from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. and reopen on Friday at 6 a.m.
  • Central Market is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Target is closed on Thanksgiving Day and reopens on Friday at 7 a.m.
  • Walmart is closed on Thanksgiving and will reopen at 5 a.m. on Friday.
  • Sprouts Farmers Market is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Whole Foods Market will open at 7 a.m. and close at 3 p.m.
  • Fiesta Mart is open regular hours from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • El Rancho Supermercado is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • 99 Ranch is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
