  • Most stores will be closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas day. I believe Scallop Cove on Cape San Blas is open until around noon or mid afternoon on the holidays and post this on their facebook page ahead of time. I do not remember if the trading post is open. I believe piggly wiggly is open for order pick ups, but I genuinely cannot remember. Some holidays they do half days. Please double check for yourselves and feel free to let me know what you find out and I’ll add it to tis page!
