HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Some Thanksgiving cooks spent Thursday morning shopping for last minute things they needed to feed friends and family.   

Corner Market was one grocery store open on the holiday for shoppers looking for those items, and picking up pre-ordered turkeys.

Some people even picked plate lunches, instead of cooking at home. 

"Most of our transactions today have just been pretty small, so a lot of people coming in, buying just a handful of those last minute items that they forgot to get," said Jordan Cain, assistant manger for Corner Market in Hattiesburg's Midtown Market.      

"It's hectic when you have those last little items that you're missing that you need to go get, so thankfully, Corner Market was open today," said Taja Silverman, a shopper from Hattiesburg.  

Cain said things like chicken broth and stuffing were big sellers Thursday morning.
