If you live near Kroger, you probably want to know whether Kroger is open on Thanksgiving and for how long.

Here’s what we predict for this year, based on what we saw from Kroger in 2022.

Is Kroger Open on Thanksgiving?

In 2022, Kroger was open with limited hours on Turkey Day for all your last-minute must-haves. Kroger Thanksgiving hours were from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., while all Kroger pharmacies remained closed.


What are Kroger Delivery and Curbside Pickup Thanksgiving Hours?

Kroger offered free curbside pickup on orders over $35 on Thanksgiving from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. last year. You could also go with delivery in as little as 30 minutes. They offered delivery on Thanksgiving between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. last year via their partner Instacart.

TIP: Kroger is one of the few stores who let you use digital and paper coupons with curbside pickup.


What are Kroger Thanksgiving Eve hours?

In 2022, Kroger grocery stores were open on Thanksgiving Eve for regular business hours, 6 a.m. – 10 p.m., while Kroger pharmacy hours were 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. Curbside pickup and delivery were available from 8 a.m. – 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., respectively.


Kroger Thanksgiving Dinner

You could skip cooking from scratch last year by picking up a heat-and-serve Kroger Thanksgiving dinner at the deli counter on Thanksgiving Eve or Thanksgiving Day.

In 2022, Kroger had three meal protein options: Home Chef boneless ham or turkey (4 – 6 people, $65), bone-in turkey, smoked turkey or ham (6 – 8 people, $80), and prime rib (6 – 8 people for $85).

Each included five side dishes, King Hawaiian rolls, and pumpkin pie. The last day to order is typically two days before Thanksgiving.

Kroger Black Friday Hours

Kroger (and the many stores Kroger owns) operated during regular hours on Black Friday, with stores opening at 6 a.m. in 2022. As part of their Black Friday deals last year, Kroger offered 4X fuel points on Friday purchases.

In addition, Kroger-owned Fred Meyer Jewelers had doorbuster deals starting at $24.99 and 50% off ticketed prices. Of course, whenever you use your Kroger shopper’s card, you’ll earn one Kroger fuel point for every $1 spent on Fred Meyer jewelry purchases.


Cyber Monday Deals at Kroger

When it comes to Cyber Monday deals, we can’t help but think of major retailers like Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and Kohl’s. But we gotta tell you, don’t underestimate Kroger as a good stop for your holiday gift-giving.

In addition to Black Friday savings, Kroger typically has an online Cyber Monday sale on that includes savings of up to 70% on name-brand home goods, toys, and electronics. You also get free shipping on orders over orders $35. Last year, we found a code for 15% off your first pickup order, and the Cyber Monday sale actually lasted until Tuesday.
