Last Minute Shopping For Thanksgiving

By  | 

To get ready for Thanksgiving, many people were out Wednesday evening making a last minute stop at the grocery store.

"It doesn't bother me to come in here last minute like this," said shopper Becky Ladd.

Ladd and her daughter stopped at the Sunflower Farmers Market in Colorado Springs to pick up a few things, and they weren't alone.

Shoppers all over Colorado Springs braved the crowds and long lines at grocery stores to stock up on their Thanksgiving supplies.

Ladd told 11 News she thought the crowds would be a lot worse.

"I really thought that we'd probably have to wait to get a grocery cart. I just thought it would be really busy," said Ladd.

With the shopping done, Ladd and her daughter are now looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with their family and friends.

"It's probably a bigger holiday for us than any other holiday," said Ladd.

In case you missed something on your list, many grocery stores will be open on Thanksgiving day, but will be closing early.
