Jubilee Foods in the Midst of Thanksgiving Rush

Posted: Updated:

HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WENY) -- We're just a few days away from Thanksgiving. If you're still scrambling to get that turkey, you're not alone.

The few days leading up to the holiday are some of the busiest of the year for grocery stores. That's certainly the case at Jubilee Foods in Horseheads.

Shelves have been fully stocked and inventory ordered well in advanced.

And while these few days are certainly hectic, management says they're more than prepared for all those extra shoppers. 

"If you look around, you'll see the decor," says Store Manager Dave Marks. "We place the orders well ahead of time, we order the turkeys months ahead of time. We make sure we have all our displays [up], all our baking [items out]; everything you need for the thanksgiving holiday."

And while Tuesday was busy, Wednesday is expected to be even more crowded.

"People wait until the last minute to pick up fresh produce and pies and all of that. [So] tomorrow is the big day," says Marks.

Jubilee is open for normal business hours Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thanksgiving, the Horseheads location is open from 6 am to 2 pm.
