Grocery stores are ready for the hordes of Turkey Day shoppers.
The baking aisles at the grocery store are as packed as a Taylor Swift concert. Shoppers cluster around  the refrigerated meat section inspecting the turkeys for size and price while debating whether fresh or frozen is best. Yes, it's that time of year again when we spruce up our homes, fill up our liquor cabinets and cook enough food to feed a high school wrestling team. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and for procrastinators, we have a list of grocery store holiday hours for last-minute cranberry sauce and that particular IPA your hipster cousin must have.
