Blue Goose, Meijer: St. Charles Thanksgiving Grocery Store Hours

Jason Addy

ST. CHARLES, IL — While Thanksgiving Day feasts are likely to be a little smaller this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, that doesn't mean we're less likely to forget the cranberry sauce, the gravy or the whipped topping for the pumpkin pie.

It's a terrible feeling — but, luckily, there's a list of grocery stores that will be open in St. Charles for those emergency and last-minute shopping trips.

In contrast to previous years, retail giants Target and Walmart will not be open on Thanksgiving.

Both chains made the decision in response to the coronavirus pandemic. In a statement released on its website, Target said the company's goal is to "make the holiday shopping experience simple, safe, and stress-free."

Here are the hours for grocery stores that will be open on Thanksgiving Day, along with a list of those that won't:

Jewel-Osco: All stores open but hours vary by location. The two St. Charles locations will be open from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday. Pharmacy hours may also vary by location. Last home delivery and Drive Up & Go (D.U.G.) on Thanksgiving Day is 3 p.m.

  • 2073 Priarie St.

  • 652 Kirk Road

Meijer: Open 24 hours (regular hours).

  • 855 S. Randall Road

Blue Goose Market: Open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
