Where You Can Shop on Thanksgiving 2019 in Elgin

Theoretically, it would be nice for everyone to get Thanksgiving Day off to spend with their family. But sometimes you need a last-minute pumpkin pie mix or turkey seasoning, and you may be left wondering which stores you can still go to for that.

Alternatively, maybe you’re looking to get a head start on your Black Friday shopping. For better or worse, many Black Friday deals are beginning earlier and earlier each year, and quite a few have crept up into the latter half of Thanksgiving Day.

Whatever your motivation, you’re here because you’re wondering: which stores are open for Thanksgiving in Elgin, IL?

Walmart Supercenter

1100 S Randall Road, Elgin

The current word on the street is that Walmart will be open all day on Thanksgiving 2019. The store will follow its regular hours. In recent years, they’ve also welcomed in Black Friday shoppers beginning at 6 PM on Thanksgiving Day.


300 S Randall Road, Elgin

Target was open from 5 pm until 1 am on Thanksgiving Day last year. Though they have yet to announce their plans for the current year, we’re guessing they’ll be open at the same time in 2019. Check back or give them a call closer to the holiday for official confirmation.

Big Lots

204 S Randall Road, Elgin

Big Lots likes to be open all day on Thanksgiving with special deals; it’s like they make the holiday another Black Friday. Last year, they were open from 7 am until 12 am, so we expect more of the same this year. Contact them or check for more information/confirmation closer to the holiday.

Kohls kicks off its 2019 Black Friday sales at 5 pm Thursday, November 28th.

A sign on the door of a store says "open." Beneath it is written, "shop."

Not Open

Blain’s Farm and Fleet

629 S Randall Road, Elgin

Last year, Blain’s Farm and Fleet closed all locations on Thanksgiving to give their employees the chance to spend the day with their families. They then re-opened at 6 AM on Black Friday to grant access to doorbuster deals. We expect they will follow the same pattern for 2019.
