Grocery Store In Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa Closed on Thanksgiving Day
Tomorrow is the bid day! I hope you're prepared and have everything you need for your Thanksgiving feast. That means EVERYTHING because a certain grocery store franchise will not be open to save you.
I highly recommend that you don't procrastinate and check your list more than once to be sure you will have everything you need. That means allowing enough time and patience to pick up those last-minute items.
If you will be shopping today, the checkout lines may be long.
Earlier this month Hy-Vee announced that all grocery, Dollar Fresh Market, Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh, and Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits locations will be closed on Thanksgiving Day so that the company’s more than 80,000 employees across its eight-state region can enjoy the holiday with their friends and family.
In its 92-year history, this is the first time that its stores will close on Thanksgiving. The one service that will remain open is pay at the pump for fuel at all Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh locations.
“Thanksgiving Day is about gratitude. The last several years have been some of the most challenging our employees have experienced and this is our way of showing our appreciation for everything they do on a daily basis to serve our customers,” said Jeremy Gosch, CEO and president of Hy-Vee. “By closing our stores on Thanksgiving Day, we can give back to our employees by providing them time to focus on their own celebrations.”
Hy Vee is joining other retail stores in closing for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Dozens of big box outlets across the country began this practice many years ago.
Start the shopping, start the cooking, make your travel plans, give thanks, and don't worry about leaving the house.
