If you forgot something essential to your Thanksgiving list, you’ll need to know if Kroger is open on Thanksgiving. They are, but we’ve got the full scoop on the holiday hours situation.

Last-minute Turkey Day shopping is a holiday cliche that most of us are familiar with. In fact, Shipt’s first Thanksgiving Most Forgotten List survey in 2021 showed that 33% of respondents forgot cranberries, followed by fragrant spices like thyme (30%), and napkins (23%). Other items that made the top 10 list include beverages, pumpkin spices, pie crust, potatoes, plates, table and autumn-specific decor, and candles.

Luckily, when this happens to you (and it will), there are several grocery stores, pharmacies, and convenience stores open on Thanksgiving to save the day. If you live near Kroger, you probably want to know whether Kroger is open on Thanksgiving and for how long. Here’s what you need to know:

Kroger Thanksgiving Dinner

You can skip cooking from scratch by picking up a heat-and-serve Kroger Thanksgiving dinner at the deli counter on Thanksgiving Eve or Thanksgiving Day. In 2021, Kroger had three meal protein options: Ham or turkey (4 – 8 people, $60 – $75) and Prime Rib (6 – 8 people for $85). Each included five side dishes, King Hawaiian rolls, and pumpkin pie. The last day to order was Nov. 23 (two days before Thanksgiving). You can also enjoy a holiday dinner at one of the many restaurants open on Thanksgiving.
