This Thanksgiving an estimated 1 million people will be spending at least part of their holiday at a store — and it won't only be for the deals.
You know it's bound to happen: the last minute grocery store pit stop. You'll inevitably forget that stick of butter for the mashed potatoes. Or you overcooked the pumpkin pie, and now you have to grab a store-made one. Whatever the reason, here's a handy list of stores that will be open on T-Day, peddling the basics just in case you need to pick up a few things for the holiday feast.
