Are you excited for turkey day? It's right around the corner!

Thanksgiving is coming up FAST! If you're the one hosting this year, then you've got quite a bit on your plate from now til then. There's the decorating, the cleaning, the organizing, the cooking, it's all so much! Before you can cook, however, you've got to make sure you've picked up everything on that grocery list.

Make sure you get all of your Thanksgiving shopping done sooner rather than later. The day before Thanksgiving, go over your grocery list to see if there is anything you forgot. Once you do that, run out and get whatever else you need that night. You'll be grateful you did.

So many stores here in the Garden State have confirmed that they will NOT be opening at all on Thanksgiving Day 2023.

1) La-Z-Boy

Not that you're planning on purchasing any furniture on Thanksgiving itself, it's just worth noting that they'll be closed. They will, however, be open for Black Friday.

2) Hobby Lobby

Ooooh, I LOVE Hobby Lobby! They've got EVERYTHING you need to host both the adults AND the kids for Thanksgiving! If you're planning on picking up anything to entertain the kids with like a craft or a paint-by-numbers kit, grab it prior to the holiday! Hobby Lobby won't be open.

3) Burlington

No shopping for your Thanksgiving outfit ON Thanksgiving, okay? Not at Burlington, at least. They'll be open the next day for Black Friday.

4) Guitar Center

Make sure you get new strings for the family sing-a-long around the fire. Do it the day before, though. Your local guitar center won't be open on Thanksgiving day.

5) Foot Locker

Your shoe game needs to be hot BEFORE the Thanksgiving parade starts. Foot Locker's closed, too.

This is a BIG ONE. TONS of people shop for Thanksgiving ingredients at Aldi. Make sure you're all set the day before, because you won't be able to run out Thanksgiving morning. Aldi's closed.

12) Home Depot

Can we survive without Target for 24 hours? Looks like we'll be finding out this year.

This one's going to shock everybody. As a "thank you" to their employees, Walmart will remain closed on the Thanksgiving holiday. Any last minute groceries you need, you'll have to go to plan B.
