If you can remember every single thing you need at the grocery store for your Thanksgiving feast, then you're basically a superhero. Between needing more butter than you might think or deciding to make an extra tub of gravy at the last second, chances are you're going to need to run to the store (or make someone else do it!). So should you send them to Trader Joe's? Is Trader Joe's open on Thanksgiving? I suppose that's why you're here. Well, the answer might be a little bit disappointing: Trader Joe's will likely be closed on Thanksgiving.

Historically, Trader Joe's stores are shut on Turkey Day, and 2021 will be just the same. So you won't be able to snag some mashed cauliflower or dinners rolls at TJ's on actual Thanksgiving, even if you just so happen to forget something. The store is typically closed on Thanksgiving so employees can spend time with their families, only to open up again on Black Friday. That means you can start stocking up on all the holiday seasonal foods you can carry, so that's the good news.

Because of this, you shouldn't bank on being able to stop here for any last-minute items. Keep in mind, many other retailers are also closing for Thanksgiving this year, including Walmart and Target (and we encourage you to adhere by all COVID-19 protocols in place no matter where you end up!). If I were you, I'd make a list, check it twice, and make sure you have everything you need before the clock strikes Thanksgiving Day. If all else fails, you can always just order out for Thanksgiving dinner.
