Albany - - As many of you fired up your grill today, a lot of you had to make a last minute trip to the grocery store.

Many stores remained open on the holiday. The folks at Taylor's Grocery Store in Albany say they were really busy this morning and had steady traffic throughout the day.

Some favorite cookout items were in heavy demand today.

"Little things like a couple more hotdogs or another pack of hamburgers, just last minute things that they didn't have enough," says cashier Ivy McGuire.

Brian Bibbins came for meat.

"Steaks and sausage. Having a grill out. Fourth of July." he says.

"Why did you wait until just now to buy it?" we asked.

"Never got enough time, always got to work," Bibbins says with a smile.

Many stores closed early so that employees could at least spend the evening with their families.
