GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – We’re just one day away from Thanksgiving and that means there’s only so much time left to get all of your necessary food fixings!
Festival Foods is anticipating quite the amount of foot traffic the next few days as customers get ready for Turkey Day. In anticipation for busy store hours, the grocery store chain will be staffed to the fullest. They’ll also be offering some helpful cooking tips so every household can achieve that perfected, delicious Thanksgiving Day meal.
“I think tomorrow morning we’re going to be busy but today we’re anticipating quite a few and that’s why we’re ready for them,” says Sue Rouse, Guest Service Lead at Green Bay North Festival Foods. “We have worked real hard to make sure the shelves are stocked that we have enough people. We are making sure that we can answer questions and we have a lot of time where we work on getting the prep going for our guests- making it an easy shopping experience.”
Staff have been ready and at the double in anticipation for arguably the biggest eating day of the year. Among the stuffing, potatoes, green bean casserole items and, of course, the pumpkin pie- items will be going quick. That’s why those at Festival have another trick up their sleeve, to make the shopping experience a little easier.
“Our shopper can go online and can choose either ‘Pick-Up’ or ‘Delivery’ and we do the shopping for you,” says Rouse. “We make it as easy as possible, especially for the busier moments. We look at many ways plus the fact that we have curb side assistance, any way that we can help.”
But no matter how frantic or busy one can get, it’s easy to lose sight of what the day is all about.
“Family. Absolutely family, gathering, being together and enjoying time together,” said Rouse.
In case you can’t get your holiday grocery shopping done sooner, Festival will be open 24/7 on Thanksgiving Day.
