Not many people plan to hit up a home improvement store on Thanksgiving, but life happens (a burst pipe, perhaps?). Whether it's for a tool to fix the Thanksgiving table or some extra decorations to spruce up your home, knowing if Home Depot is open on Thanksgiving becomes crucial. Here's everything you need to know about Home Depot’s Thanksgiving hours, along with helpful tips for your holiday shopping.
Are Home Depot Stores Open on Thanksgiving 2023?
Sorry to break it to you: Home Depot is closed on Thanksgiving Day. Like some other major retailers — including Walmart, Target, and Trader Joe's — the company closes its doors on Turkey Day to allow employees to spend time with their families. The good news is that, according to The Krazy Coupon Lady, Home Depot is open both the day before and after Thanksgiving.

Home Depot Hours
Home Depot's regular store hours are from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. or 10 pm., depending on the location. But remember: The store is closed on Thanksgiving, so don't show up while your turkey is cooking and expect to buy last-minute items.
Alternative Shopping Options
If Home Depot is closed, don’t worry. You can still shop for deals and products online. In fact, Home Depot often runs special Thanksgiving and Black Friday deals on their website, providing a convenient alternative for holiday shoppers.
Some major retailers are open on Thanksgiving, including CVS, Best Buy, and Sears. Check your local hardware stores as well to see if they're open with limited hours on Thanksgiving Day.
Home Depot Black Friday 2023
You may not be able to shop at Home Depot on Thanksgiving, but you can take advantage of its Black Friday specials. Home Depot’s Black Friday sales last from Nov. 1 through Nov. 29, and include discounts on items such as tool kits, Christmas decorations, and more.
The Bottom Line
While Home Depot will close its doors on Thanksgiving Day, it offers plenty of online shopping options to cater to your last-minute home improvement needs. Just remember to plan ahead and check online — or keep a local handyman’s emergency contact info close by for any unexpected holiday disasters.
