But, if you forgot to pick up an important ingredient on your list or had a new idea for a dish to add to your dinner table, you may be in need of a last-minute trip to your local store.
Since Thanksgiving is a federal holiday, many businesses across the country are closed, but some grocery store chains are staying open for at least part of the accommodate customers. If Winn-Dixie is your local grocery store of choice, you are probably wondering if the chain is one of those open grocery stores. Here’s what we know:
