"It's been a little hectic shopping for Thanksgiving, I've got 2 kids at home so their eating me out of a house, groceries are really high.", said Robin Aark, who is a Local Resident.

According to Garet, the store manager here their store has not experienced a turkey shortage, and sales of turkeys have been good this year.

Garet Vannoy, Billeaud Grocery Store Manager said, "It's been really busy leading up to this week, and it's only going to increase over the next 3 days we give our employees off on Thanksgiving Day, so they can be with their families, everybody is going to squeeze in here for the next few days to get all their stuff ready for Thanksgiving Day and we're ready for them."

If you are grocery shopping for Thanksgiving you may want to shop early because some stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, including Billeaud Grocery Store.
