Walgreens is the perfect spot to grab butter or milk if you are one of many people who are in need of last-minute shopping items on Thanksgiving.

In previous years, it was uncommon for stores to be closed during Thanksgiving since it is a day before Black Friday.

But ahead of this year’s festivities, several chains confirmed that they will remain closed to allow time for their employees to spend time with their families.

Some people need a trip to Walgreens and wonder whether the chain’s stores are open or closed today.
