While we're thankful for our favorite Thanksgiving dinner recipes, we're even more thankful for drugstores open on Thanksgiving Day. We've all needed to make extra purchases on the holiday, and it's no secret CVS has a smorgasbord of items to save the day. Whether you're seeking supplies for these terrific Thanksgiving kids crafts or craving snacks to keep you satisfied while preparing your Thanksgiving desserts, there's nothing more convenient than a quick drop-by at CVS. So you might be wondering: Is CVS open on Thanksgiving this year?

To assist you with all your last-minute holiday needs, we've gathered all the info regarding the drugstore's Thanksgiving hours for 2021.

Is CVS Open on Thanksgiving 2021?

Good news if you need to pick up something from the drugstore: Many CVS locations will be open on Thanksgiving, including the pharmacy, though hours may depend on location. "As a provider of essential prescriptions and medications, many of our locations remain open on Thanksgiving," a CVS representative tells Good Housekeeping. "A large number are open with regular hours, but some will also operate with reduced hours. As always, it’s best to call ahead to confirm hours with your local pharmacy."

In other words, you should definitely make sure to check the details on your local CVS, as different locations may have different hours for the holiday. CVS Pharmacies and Minute Clinic typically operate on different schedule than the rest of the store, too, so if you're looking to pick up a medication, we'd — again — recommend calling your local CVS before you leave the house.

What Other Stores Are Open on Thanksgiving 2021?

Need to get something else that's not sold at the drugstore? There are many other stores open Thanksgiving Day (including department stores for early Black Friday deals) and grocery stores open Thanksgiving Day (for a last-minute turkey). And if you want to snag a bite to eat before the big feast, be sure to check out our faves serving fast food open Thanksgiving and restaurants open Thanksgiving.
