If you've been blessed with a Costco store within driving distance from your home, consider yourself among the "chosen ones," because gosh, are you lucky! 🙌 The wholesale store isn't just the third largest retailer in the entire world, but it's also the place where holiday magic is created. Our Thanksgiving menus practically come to life after strolling through the marvelously-packed aisles, and we have to stop ourselves from piling our cart with everything we see. With Thanksgiving upon us, it makes sense that you'd pay Costco a visit once or twice (...or a handful of times) ahead of the holiday. That's hardly a reason to be embarrassed! Whatever it takes, as long as it means you grab everything you need—because the last thing you want is to realize you're missing a key ingredient on Thanksgiving Day.

Let's face it: It happens! When it does, odds are Costco is top of mind when wondering which stores are open on Thanksgiving. A well thought-out holiday has so many moving parts, so it's only natural for something to slip through the cracks! Maybe you forgot just how many paper napkins your family goes through, or perhaps you realize you're running low on Thanksgiving wine (in which case, check if liquor stores are open on Thanksgiving in your state first!). Dinner planning aside, let's not forget Costco's fantastic selection of flowers! What if you want to swing by to grab a bouquet for your Thanksgiving host?!

That means you need to know Costco's Thanksgiving hours if you plan to use the wholesale store for day-of errands.

Is Costco open on Thanksgiving?

Loyal patrons may already know this, but Costco will be closed on Thanksgiving 2023—which is the case year after year. Costco observes plenty of holidays annually, so if you need something, it's better to visit a different grocery store open on Thanksgiving. Don't worry: There are many other options! And you can always wait 'til the next day on Black Friday when Costco stores typically open from 9:00am to 8:30pm.

By the way, if you're in need of a quick bite on Turkey Day, you can always check out the fast food options and restaurants open on Thanksgiving, too. And anyone who needs caffeine to make it through all that cooking should know that Starbucks is open on Thanksgiving! Thank goodness.
