Is Walmart open on Thanksgiving? It's one of the most frequently-asked questions around Thanksgiving time, but it's also one of the most perplexing. After all, why would you need to know Walmart's Thanksgiving hours? On that much-anticipated day, won't you be happily seated at your dining table, fork in hand, saying your prayers and enjoying the most delicious Thanksgiving menu?
Well, maybe. By the time the fourth Thursday in November rolls around and your first few second cousins show up on your doorstep, it's true that you've probably already got most of your Thanksgiving plans figured out. You've cooked up the perfect Thanksgiving recipes. You've arranged the perfect table settings with festive Thanksgiving placemats and centerpieces. You've unearthed your grandma's famous pecan pie recipe.
But as every hostess knows, even the best-laid plans can still go awry. That's why it's important to have a few backups in place, like extra place cards for unexpected guests, a ton of paper towels for inevitable spills near the kids' table, and, yes, Walmart's Thanksgiving hours.
So, is Walmart open on Thanksgiving?
The retailer hasn't yet commented on its store hours for 2019—but this year's in-store Black Friday sale should begin at 6 p.m. (local time) on Thanksgiving Day, with an online sale starting Wednesday, November 21 at 10 p.m. EST.
Our conclusion: Whether you need to make a paper towel run or simply escape another long-winded conversation with your uncle, your local Walmart is probably worth a try. Should you need anything else, there are also a ton of other stores staying open on Thanksgiving—and restaurants open on Thanksgiving too.
