Thanksgiving is right around the corner and of course, a lot of stuff will be closed.

I've never been a fan of shopping on Thanksgiving but sometimes you might have to run out and get something you need. Around the Quad Cities, there are plenty of places to get full to-go Thanksgiving meals so you don't have to run the risk of burning the house down if you can't cook.

Stores closing or not closing on Thanksgiving has been a sticky topic for years. Some argue that it's great to get a jump on Black Friday shopping by lining up outside of Best Buy at 6:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Others say that everyone should back off for a day and stores should close, observing the holiday.

Whichever way you lean, there are multiple places in the QCA that will be closed, and a few that will be open, on Thanksgiving Day 2023, per People. Without further ado, here you go.

Again, call those stores before you head out there on Thanksgiving to make sure that they are open and if they are, what their hours look like. Obviously, most places are closed on Thanksgiving so do your best to make sure you have everything you need for the holiday before Thursday!
