If you’re like us, no holiday gets you thinking about food quite like Thanksgiving. The big Thanksgiving meal is a legendary pastime in the United States, from the ham and turkey to the millions of sides, be they cranberries in a can, or sweet potatoes.
It can also be an expensive holiday feast to host, which is what makes Aldi an attractive shopping option. But when is Aldi open during Thanksgiving week?
Let’s take a brief look.
The Day Before Thanksgiving (Thanksgiving Eve)
The day before Thanksgiving, a Wednesday, is a major travel day in the United States, so some companies will use it as a floating holiday to allow workers to get to their families. At Aldi, though, it’s just another day. The store is open, with normal operating hours, on the day before Thanksgiving. It’s also a busy last-minute grocery shopping day, so be warned: your Aldi store is likely to have a lot of foot traffic going on.
There was a time when Thanksgiving Day was a pretty quiet holiday. But as Black Friday shopping has crept into Thanksgiving Day, retailers in recent years have opened their stores on turkey day to get a jump start on the holiday shopping season. While some stores have recently changed course, closing on Thanksgiving to allow employees to spend time with loved ones, that’s not true of every retailer.
As for Aldi? What if you need some stuffing on the big day? Or a bottle of Aldi’s famously inexpensive wine to pair with your dinner? Well, you’re out of luck. Every Aldi store in America is closed on Thanksgiving Day. Aldi employees have that day to spend with their families.
The Day After Thanksgiving (Black Friday)
You may not be thinking about groceries on the busiest shopping day of the year, but if you still need more food the day after Thanksgiving, Aldi is open with normal operating hours on the day after Thanksgiving. Because Aldi doesn’t currently do anything out of the ordinary on Black Friday, we’re guessing that the German grocery store is a lot less busy on this day than your typical big box store.
