Better not forget to buy the Thanksgiving turkey this year — a last-minute trip to Giant Eagle will leave you empty-handed.
The O’Hara-based company announced Wednesday that its Giant Eagle grocery stores, Market District stores and GetGo gas stations will all be closed on Nov. 25 for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Giant Eagle said in a news release that its goal is to give its workers the chance to enjoy the holiday.
“Our team members have been working tirelessly to provide a safe shopping environment for our guests while ensuring access to essential food, fuel, and medicines,” company spokesperson Jannah Jablonowski said in a statement. “We cannot thank them enough for the dedication they have shown day in and day out.”
Giant Eagle’s transportation and retail support centers will also close for the holiday.
The company encouraged shoppers to make sure to stock up on stuffing, pumpkin pie and gasoline in advance.
Stores and offices will reopen as normal Nov. 26 for Black Friday.
