Thanksgiving Rush

Posted:

It's not only the biggest travel day of the year, but the biggest shopping day for food as well.
Grocery stores are feeling the rush as you work to put that perfect meal on the table.
Reporter Sarah Gustin has the story.

It's a holiday that's all about the food. 
(Larry Theurer / Cash Wise) "This is probably thee busiest 2 weeks. We will be very, very busy going into Christmas. There's no question about that." 
Cash-Wise store manager Larry Theurer has been in the grocery store business for more than thirty years.
He says while Christmas is a big holiday for grocery stores...Thanksgiving truly revolves around all the fixings.
(Larry Theurer / Cash Wise) "We felt the rush already last week. It started last week Sunday and it's been pretty busy the whole time. Usually today is by far the most busy day, this is actually busier than Christmas because people are more meal orientated."
Theurer says it's mainly the traditional items shoppers are after, the stuffing, cranberries and pie--and of course the turkeys.
Plus he says a growing western North Dakota is impacting grocery stores here in Bismarck.
(Sarah Gustin / sgustin@kxnet.com) "And with a growing Bismarck, local grocery stores have to store a lot more birds for the holiday season."
(Larry Theurer / Cash Wise) "We do have more families here in bismarck.We had to take that into consideration and I think he probably ordered 20% more turkeys this year than he did last year. just for the fact of the growth of North Dakota. We wanted to make sure that we are taking that into consideration."
A busy holiday in a busy town.

Theurer expects to be very busy through the Christmas holiday.
