Is Publix open on Thanksgiving?

Continuing its tradition, the grocery chain will be closed this Thanksgiving holiday.

Publix announced that it will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday but will reopen for regular store hours the following Friday. Winn-Dixie will also be closed as the company says it made the decision to give its workers a "day of rest with their family and loved ones."
