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:
