ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Have you picked up all the ingredients you need to make your Thanksgiving feast?

You'll be fighting crowds in the aisles of the stores, if the item you are looking for is even left on the shelf. WALB went to the grocery store today to speak to some last minute shoppers.

The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest days of the year for grocery shopping.

For Juanita Golden, she had to go to not one, but two stores to get all the ingredients she needs to make Thanksgiving Day dinner. "Sage and powdered sugar. I couldn't find any of it and for baking you need that," she said.

Her second stop, Winn-Dixie, was a success. Pat Marcus found those last minute items she needed as well, but just barely. "They've picked over everything, but luckily I have found what I need."

Darryl Jackson said he picked the perfect time of day to come shopping, before most people get off of work for the holiday. "It's going to be a mad house."

And already has been. Department manager Tony Holloway says the Thanksgiving frenzy started early this week. "It picked up Sunday. Saturday, Sunday and Monday, it gradually started getting heavier and heavier."

Employees work to keep the shelves stocked with Thanksgiving essentials. "Pretty much as soon as we unpack it, they're hitting it hard, but later in the day, it will get busier."

As people get prepared to give thanks for what they hold dear. "That's what it's all about, fun food and family."'

And for these shoppers, the feast.

If you did forget those last minute items, most stores bought in lots of back up staples for traditional holiday meals.

Some grocery stores will even be open Thursday.
