In all of my years in assisting with Thanksgiving dinner, I have come to realize there's always something you may forget.

Maybe it's a seasoning or a bigger bowl.

Or now you realize you need more eggs or milk (it's always milk) and you need to go to the store.

But it's Thanksgiving!

Now you have a decision to make.

Get in your car and drive to places that you have no idea are open or not, or just send your husband or boyfriend or child to find out if these places are open or not.

Needless to say, you have to get what you need. Check out this guide of public places that are open in Killeen and surrounding areas according to Brittany Sodic of The Killeen Daily Herald.

Grocery Stores In Killeen And Surrounding Areas

For starters, HEB will be open until noon on Thanksgiving Thursday, November 25th.

Curbside delivery will be available from 7 to 11 am and home delivery is canceled on Thanksgiving.

So if you need milk or egg,  you got until noon to get it!

Neighborhood Walmart stores will be closed on Thanksgiving, so basically, H-E-B is your best bet.

Don't think you handle any serious city business on Thanksgiving because of course city workers need to enjoy the holiday as well.

This goes for Killeen, Temple, Belton, Copperas Cove, Gatesville, Salado, and Lampasas.


Last And Definitely Least

Trash Pickup!

These employees have always been unsung heroes. If you're not looking at a giant pile of garbage on your front lawn right now, it's thanks to these folks continuing to show up for work. Like postal workers, they're at an increased risk of exposure as well. Stay safe out there, guys. We appreciate you.

As for your garbage or trash pickup, it varies what city you live in.

For example, Killeen's pickup will be on Wednesday instead of Thursday.

Harker Heights trash pick-up will be a day later, Saturday's schedule will not be affected.

Copperas Cove's pickup will happen a day later.


Belton's trash will also be picked up a day later.


There you have it, be safe and enjoy your holiday weekend!
