Gone are the days of camping out in your local parking lot to get first dibs on the season’s must-have sales on Thanksgiving. Like Target, Kohl’s, and Best Buy, Walmart will close all locations, including Walmart Supercenters and Walmart Neighborhood Markets, on Thanksgiving.

Target’s Thanksgiving closure is a permanent thing, but Walmart has yet to announce whether they’ll one day return to being open on Turkey Day. Regardless of future plans, we do know this year Walmart will not be open. Of course, if you want or need to shop on Thanksgiving Day, you can do so online at

For those last-minute items, you can shop in person at other retailers that’ll have stores open on Thanksgiving.


What time does Walmart close Thanksgiving Eve?

On Nov. 23, 2022, the day before Thanksgiving, Walmart locations will be open regular hours, from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Services like curbside pickup and same-day delivery will also be available. Last year Walmart extended their delivery window by two hours, up to 10 p.m., which we expect to see again this year. This means you can place an order up until 6 p.m. for express, same-day, or next-day delivery.

Walmart’s 2-hour express delivery costs $10 on top of their regular $9.95 delivery fee if you’re not a Walmart+ member or your order is under $35. Walmart+ members pay only the $10 express delivery fee, as regular delivery is free for them.

Keep in mind, Walmart Pharmacies, Walmart Vision Centers, and Walmart Health clinics will also be open on Thanksgiving Eve with limited hours. Contact your local Walmart for specific information related to that store.

This year in-store deals at Walmart will run from 5 a.m. on Black Friday when they open until closing time at 11 p.m. Curbside pickup and Walmart delivery options, including 2-hour express delivery, same-day, free next-day, and 2-day delivery, will be available.

Unfortunately, Walmart layaway is a thing of the past. However, the retailer is continuing their tradition of major Black Friday sales. And they will start Cyber Monday shopping early, with those sales beginning on Sunday, Nov. 27.
