Starbucks needs no introduction — the ubiquitous coffee franchise can be found all over the world. Whether you need a morning pick-me-up as you tackle your to-do list or just want to treat yourself, your nearby Starbucks may be just what you’re looking for.

Is Starbucks Open on Thanksgiving?

Whether or not Starbucks will be open will depend on your local cafe’s discretion. Starbucks will be open on Thanksgiving, however, only in select locations and possibly for shortened hours. If you are looking to get your caffeine fix before your Thanksgiving gathering, be sure to reach out to your local Starbucks to check on their hours of operation as it will vary.

What Time Does Starbucks Open?

Some Starbucks locations are open 365 days a year, but not all of them. For those locations that are open year-round, the company does not keep a universal holiday schedule — or even consistent hours from store to store.

Typically, Starbucks will be open from around 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on regular days, but stores can open as early as 5 a.m. and stay open until 11 p.m. or later, depending on the location. Individual locations may also open later or closer earlier.

These holiday closures are a general overview of stores and will vary greatly by location. Your local store will likely post its holiday hours online and on-location in the days leading up to the holiday.

It’s always a good idea to call ahead or use the Starbucks Store Locator on the Starbucks website or mobile app to make sure you can get that caramel latte or macchiato when you need it.

When Does Starbucks Close?

All Starbucks stores have different hours to best serve their local markets. Many Starbucks locations close on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, but some will remain open with potentially limited hours. Some stores even extend their hours on days like Black Friday.

Starbucks Store Locator

You can find the hours that specific stores are open by using the company’s store locator tool. The tool will search based on your current location, or you can find Starbucks stores anywhere.

To find stores in a certain area, all you have to do is type the city and state or ZIP code into the tool and select the “Filter” button. Then, click on the information symbol to view hours of the location you’re interested in.

The store locator will also tell you if that store offers mobile ordering, mobile payment, a drive-thru or other amenities.

Starbucks Locations at Target Stores

If your favorite Starbucks happens to be located inside a Target store, you should know that these locations will close when or before Target does. Target locations will typically be open on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, but they may close earlier than usual.

Target is generally closed on Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

Starbucks Mobile App

The Starbucks app makes it easy to find the nearest store that’s open on a holiday — or any other day, for that matter — right on your phone. For many stores, you can also order ahead on the app, so your latte or Frappuccino will be waiting for you when you arrive. You can download the Starbucks app for iOS at the App Store or for Android at Google Play.

To find out if there’s a store near you that’s open when you need that caffeine fix, open the app and tap “Stores.” The app will show you the stores nearest where you are, sorted by distance.

If a store is closed at the time you’re checking, the app will indicate when it will reopen. The store listing will also indicate whether or not you can order ahead at that store.
