Although big box stores like Walmart have reversed the trend of being open on Thanksgiving Day, some Valley stores will be doing business on the holiday.  Most Walgreens won’t be among them.

The pharmacy retail chain announced that it is closing nearly all its stores and pharmacies on Turkey Day, except for the 24-hour locations.  The nearest Walgreens 24-hour store to the Valley is in Alliance, Ohio

“We have consistently heard from our team members—who are the face of Walgreens—that time off is a meaningful way for us to demonstrate we value them,” said Tracey D. Brown, EVP, President Walgreens Retail & Chief Customer Officer. “We heard them, are committed to listening to their feedback, and are dedicated to doing what is right for them. We hope they can enjoy the holiday and spend time with their loved ones.”
