Grocery Store Open T-Day

I have a few last minute items. Does anyone know a grocery store in the Milford area that is open?

    call your local major chains [i think you guys have Stop & Shop and Shaw's there...?] most are usually open until around 2 pm on T-day.

      The MA blue laws have them all closed. Small convenience stores can open. Remember the fuss when the 88 chain wanted to open on Thanksgiving?

        that's really interesting - we have blue laws here in Bergen County, NJ, but all the grocery stores were open today. i guess the restrictions differ by state.

          Figured out the blue laws thing a little too late. I didn't think *every* grocery store would be open, but I thought at least one or two. Thanks for those who responded. Unfortunately, what I needed was not at any convenience stores :(

            I don't think everyone is following the blue laws (more typical MA silliness anyway). I saw a sign on a grocery store in Haverhill (forget which one) saying it was open on Thanksgiving.

          Old thread, but saved me a trip today, so bump.

          Anyone have a link to the actual no-groceries-on-Thanksgiving law?

            Every holiday we do a piece on what is open and what is closed plus MBTA schedule changes. For a few of those we add a link to the old Blue laws site. Here is the link we provide.

                For future reference, the Golden Goose on Commercial St is open every day; including Txgiving, XMas.

                They used to be a convenience store but have upgraded to a full butcher shop, veg/fruit and a good variety of higher end products.

                They are likely to have most last minute items you may need and will deliver to the NE or WF.
