BATAVIA, IL — While Thanksgiving Day feasts are likely to be a little smaller this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, that doesn’t mean we’re less likely to forget the cranberry sauce, the gravy or the whipped topping for the pumpkin pie.
It’s a terrible feeling — but, luckily, there’s a list of grocery stores that will be open in Batavia for those emergency and last-minute shopping trips.
In contrast to previous years, retail giants Target and Walmart will not be open on Thanksgiving.
Both chains made the decision in response to the coronavirus pandemic. In a statement released on its website, Target said the company’s goal is to “make the holiday shopping experience simple, safe, and stress-free.”
Here are the hours for grocery stores that will be open on Thanksgiving Day, along with a list of those that won’t:
Jewel-Osco: All stores open but hours vary by location. The Batavia location will be open from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday. Pharmacy hours may also vary by location. Last home delivery and Drive Up & Go (D.U.G.) on Thanksgiving Day is 3 p.m.
Berkeley Finer Foods: Open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday.
- Sam’s Club
- Trader Joe’s
