Last minute shoppers rushed to grocery stores the night before Thanksgiving, and with only a few hours left, supermarkets across our area are busy.
It’s down to the wire for last minute shoppers like Peter Easterly.
“I forgot a couple last minute things, I always forget a couple of last minute things. I am in here everyday,” says Easterly.
Princess McReynolds took the day off for prep work. It’s a good thing she did, this is her second stop.
“I started my cooking and got so engrossed in that, when I started on my food I realized I didn’t have those couple of items,” says McReynolds.
Tonight these shoppers are more concerned with dinner or dessert.
“The pumpkin pie. I only like my grandmothers,” says Shalom Krutz.
Krutz and her family had no problem navigating the lines. Her mother, Ayeesha, says while most are stressed out shopping, her daughter makes it fun.
“No usually when we have a big family like we all kind of pitch in and do it,” says Ayeesha.
That’s the key word: “family.”
“Being able to love, break bread together and just create a lot of memories,” adds McReynolds.
If you forgot something last minute, don’t sweat it. Wegmans, Tops, and department stores like Target, Old Navy, and Macy’s are all open on Thanksgiving.
