Last-minute Thanksgiving shopping in the Mid-Ohio Valley

By  | 

PARKERSBURG, W.Va.-(WTAP) Whether or not they're cooking for a couple of people or many...shoppers Tuesday made their last trips to local supermarkets, looking for all those items for Thanksgiving dinner.

We spoke a some shoppers at Piggly Wiggly in Gihon Village.

While some just need a couple of items, others need a lot more.

"We have all the kids and the grandkids in, and it's really nice to have them," said shopper Grace Amos.

Do you cook for all of them? "I do."

How much effort does that take? "It takes a couple of days."

"We've been invited to our son's house for Thanksgiving, so I'm just supposed to take the pumpkin pie, the whipped cream and all that good stuff," said Sharon Walker.

It may, in fact be the last-minute rush for the Thanksgiving turkey.

Shoppers told us it takes as long as two days for a turkey to thaw before it's ready for the oven-at least if you're keeping it in the refrigerator.

SHOPPERS TOLD US IT TAKES AS LONG AS TWO DAYS FOR A TURKEY TO THAW BEFORE IT'S READY FOR THE OVEN.
