Last minute shoppers fill Lubbock streets and businesses

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The busiest day for local grocery stores is upon us and last minute shoppers are out gathering supplies for Thanksgiving dinner.

The parking lots are full and it is even busier inside most grocery stores today. The aisles are full and the lines to check out are long. "It's insane, its crazy in here," said Brittany Birdwell, last minute shopping at United.

"Probably going to have to come back another time or two," said Bill Bowers, another last minute shopper.

However, grocery stores aren't the only busy businesses in Lubbock.

Today is also the busiest day of the year for Lubbock's Glazed Honey Ham. They say their business increases by 100 percent and they're anticipating around 1,000 customers.

"We expect it to be busy all day. We had cars pulling in about 8:30 this morning and we've been steady...all day long," said Matt Laycock, Glazed Honey Ham General Manager.

United Supermarkets will not have extended hours tonight and they will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. All Lowe's grocery stores will also be closed for Thanksgiving Day. If you need some last minute items, your best bet will be Walmart. They will continue to be open 24-hours.
