OKLAHOMA CITY -- Last minute shoppers are swarming the grocery stores to pick up all their food necessities before Thanksgiving Day.

"This is one of the busiest times of the year," Crest Operation Manager Dale Brooks said.

Chrissey Glavan is scrambling with the help of her children to pick up groceries for Turkey Day.

"I don't have anything. I guess I wasn't prepared to do this. We just decided yesterday that we're going to stay home," Glavan said.

Other shoppers are joining in the food rush.

"I'm doing all my shopping today that I should have done a day or so ago," Anita Murray said.

Murray said she's preparing all the fixings for a family feast.

"A big ham, we have ribs and some Cornish hens. I'm going to have the dressing and the works with it," Murray said.

Even though her shopping is happening last minute, Murray said she's prepared to go all out.

"I'm ready to get it on. I got a lot to do and I'm going to do it by myself," Murray said.
