Local stores prepare for last-minute holiday shoppers

Hampden County

LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – Retail stores aren’t the only ones packed with last-minute shoppers.

Grocery stores were also busy Tuesday as people get ready to prepare their holiday meals. Most grocery stores close early at night and are closed on Christmas Day, so Tuesday day was the last chance for many people to grab what they needed.

One shopper told 22News they went to the Big Y in Ludlow but the parking lot was so crowded, he went to the Chicopee location instead.

Ludlow resident, Gary Barna told 22News, “The ingredients I like them fresh so I wait until the last minute some stuff I bought a couple of days before like the beer and the wine but other than that I like the fresh meat.”

If you still have some last minute grocery items to get for your holiday meal, time is running out! Big Y closes at 6 p.m. Tuesday night.
