houston stores open on thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a day for celebrating all of the things we’re thankful for alongside our loved ones. While we all envision Thanksgiving as a day when we can sit at home all day and watch football while eating ourselves into a coma, it’s all too common to have to make runs to the store for batteries for the remote control, extra whipped cream, other turkey day or everyday essentials, or just for some great deals.

Thankfully, there are quite a few stores that remain open on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26th. However, things are obviously quite a bit different this year as some stores that have been open in prior years will be closed this Thanksgiving due to the ongoing pandemic.

Below is a breakdown of which Houston stores are open on Thanksgiving as well as which are closed for the holiday.
