Portland, Oregon (KOIN) – Local grocery stores were packed on Wednesday night as shoppers made their final purchases to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday.
The rattling of rolling carts signaled a kick-off for the upcoming busy holiday season, but despite the lack of supply chains, there were no bare shelves.
Thanksgiving shopper Lacy Waldon was one of the hundreds of people who flowed into Berlinham Fred Meyer in search of last-minute items.
“I was very busy, but it was great and everyone was very cheerful because I didn’t have to wait long in line,” Waldon said.
But not everyone could find everything on their list.
“”All the cream corn came out. I can’t make my mom’s casserole this year, “said shopper Malinda West.
West told KOIN 6 News that he blamed the last minute shopping, not a supply chain issue.
According to IRI, a market research company nationwide, there is a report that there is a shortage of cranberry sauce etc. due to supply chain problems. Yams and sweet potatoes were also affected. Nothing is said about creamed corn.
“I didn’t usually see what I really lacked,” said shopper Joe Dinsmore.
Most of the KOIN 6 news was thankful for talking to find what I needed and gathering with friends and family on holidays.
