Thanksgiving is a time for family.

"Seeing people, because we only get together maybe once or twice a year, and they gobble everything up," one local shopper tells us.

Sports...

"Sitting with my son, talking about football," stated one shopper.

And of course...

"Food," says one local shopper.

We know that dinner can certainly add up, so we're making Thanksgiving a little extra special.
