Shoppers were out at the grocery store on Christmas Eve, picking up those last-minute food items for the big Christmas meal.
Hy-Vee on Harrison in Quincy was crowded with people this afternoon. All registers were open– trying to get shoppers in-and-out quickly.
Some of those shoppers were from out of town, picking up those last-minute items for family members.
“We always end up having to buy something, we run out of something, or we need to go stock up for Christmas,” Dwayne Ehrmann said. “Especially for when you’re going some place and you find out that they’re short, so we try to help out.”
Hy-Vee will remain open until 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve, before closing for Christmas. The store will go back to normal business hours on Wednesday.
