Pushing the limit on shopping for Thanksgiving dinner


There isn't much time left to get your house in order for one of the biggest meals of the year.   Some fresh turkey vendors are putting customers on a waiting list, but at the Winn Dixie on Veterans Parkway, they still have a large supply.   Last-minute shoppers are filling their carts with everything they need to entertain their household before it's too late.  

"I'm always johnny-come-lately.   I know it's here, they keep it here for me," said Robert Jones, "I like the dressing the most. You get a bunch of dressing and gravy on it, put a little turkey with it, and mix it up, -nice belly warmer." 

Janice Harris isn't a last-minute shopper by choice.

"I took care of my granddaughter, I have a little three-year-old granddaughter, so I had her some extra time this week and I didn't want to go to the grocery store with her.   I had already bought a couple of things, but I haven't really done any cooking yet, so I'm about to get started."  said Harris.  

Regina Draut is serving 38 people in her family Thursday evening.

"I just got off work so I came over here to get some last minute stuff.  We're all bringing something.   When you have a family that big, you pretty much have to."  said Draut. 

There's good news for anyone who still has more shopping to do. Some grocery stores are going to be open for part of Thanksgiving day.  This Winn Dixie on Veterans Parkway will stay open up until 4 p.m. for anyone who missed an item on their list, or possibly hasn't even started.
