Last-minute shoppers swarm grocery stores

A Hy-Vee employee restocks their Thanksgiving display.

With less than one day until Thanksgiving, mid-Missourians are flocking to grocery stores to get last-minute dinner necessities.

Employees at Hy-Vee in Jefferson City said they anticipate the last minute rush and stock up on popular items.

Shoppers told KRCG 13 they were picking up things like green beans, pie fillings and crusts, other desserts and even figs.

Despite the range of shopping items they need to make a perfect dinner, all shoppers agreed that the most important thing about Thanksgiving is being with family and loved ones.
