Albany -- Are you guilty of waiting until the last minute to pick up what you need for your Thanksgiving dinner? Or maybe you forgot that carton of eggs or can of condensed milk you need for a special recipe. You're definitely not alone. Grocery stores throughout South Georgia are packed with folks the night before Thanksgiving.
If the day after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day of the year, the day before must be the busiest Grocery shopping day. There aren't just lines inside the stores to check out, at Publix in Albany, there was a line just to park.
That's why Allison Hays hopes she got everything she needs in the first shot. We hope so too, since she had two buggies full! "Look, I've got a list and I crossed everything out. I think I got it all."
But not everyone is done with their shopping. Glen Phelps was loading up on turkeys, boy is he going to be tired. "Buying turkey breasts so that we can fry them up. I'm going to have the family over tomorrow and I'm cooking for some friends so I'm going to get up in the morning and cook about eight of them."
And since he likes to cook turkeys so much, he even gave out some free advice. "I can use all the help I can get." Help with those last minute items, but Heather Rhodes now wishes she hadn't actually waited until the last minute to get them.
"I was surprised at the crowd. I drove up in the parking lot and I was talking to a friend on my cell phone and I said, 'I'm going to run in a get a couple of things,' and said, 'oh my goodness. Everybody waiting til the last minute like I did."
And in your last minute rush for Thanksgiving dinner, don't forget some of the most important items, ingredients for dessert. "I'm cooking apple Brown Betty dessert, which is wonderful with vanilla ice cream, that's for dessert but don't have it first," said Rhodes.
Or you might not have room for all that turkey, and that would be a shame, because you wouldn't have a good excuse for that late afternoon nap.
And don't worry. if you forget something you really need for the special meal you're preparing, you'll still have a chance to get it.
Although most stores are closed Thursday, Wal-mart will actually operate on normal store hours.
