Holiday Heartburn: SF Grocery Stores Open On Thanksgiving

Well, it’s happened again. You waited too long to make reservations at a restaurant on Thanksgiving, and now they’re all booked up. Ha ha, no they’re not. Not this year. But perhaps, for some reason, you want to cook dinner at home anyway. It’s Thanksgiving day and you’ve got everything ready except… What? Butcher’s twine? Cornstarch? Cocktail Onions? A turkey?

God, it almost seems impossible that you won’t need a grocery store on Thanksgiving. Fortunately, you’ve got options:

• Most Safeway stores are open till at least 6 p.m. it wouldn’t hurt to call ahead just to be double-sure, but when we called around, we didn’t find any that closed any earlier. The 24-hour ones seem to be closing at 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. the next day.

• The three Whole Foods in town are open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, with extended hours earlier in the week.

• The 24-hour Cala Foods on Nob Hill will close at 6 p.m. Thursday

• The three Delano’s IGA stores in the city are open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday.

There may be more hot shopping action that we missed. If you have a tip, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. And happy Thanksgiving!
