If you forget an important Thanksgiving ingredient or need a liter of milk, do not despair.
Some grocery stores, pharmacy chains and most large convenience stores
will be open for last minute deals on Thursday.
But shoppers, watch out. More stores will close on Thanksgiving than in previous years and the stores that are open will have reduced opening hours. Walmart and Target, which opened for the holidays for years
Black Friday sales, are closed and reopen on Friday.
Due to state laws, stores in Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island will also be closed. Stores in certain areas also have varying opening hours due to county council laws or municipal laws.
Several restaurants are also closed on Thanksgiving. ( See the list of those that are open and those that are closed here.)

cranberry sauce, you may have a hard time finding it.
This holiday season, thanks
supply chain problems, many products are harder to store and some supermarkets do not have enough cranberry sauce.
Ahead of Thanksgiving, Publix, which is closed on Thursday, began restricting the purchase of canned cranberry sauce and some other products, including canned sauce and canned pie filling.
