Wichitans make last minute dash for Thanksgiving fixings

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

If you've been to the grocery store at all today, chances are you've fought for a parking spot, grocery cart, or even the last turkey...

And several of Wichita's procrastinators could be found at Dillions today.

The Dillions on Rock Road has seen a steady stream of shoppers since opening this morning. 

Some folks were making their third trip of the day to get that one last item...while others were just starting on their list.

Despite the chaos, Customer Gary Gimple is already getting in the holiday spirit of gratitude.

"We're shopping for thanksgiving! Hey its going great, its a wonderful day out here," says Gimple.

If you need to make a last minute trip to Dillions tomorrow, they'll be open until 5 p.m.
