KNOXVILLE (WATE) - It's Thanksgiving eve which means there's a lot of home-cooking taking place around East Tennessee. That means last minute trips to the grocery store for that one forgotten item or to remake that recipe that didn't turn out quite right the first time.

Costco is out of turkeys, but the store has plenty of everything else.

Miranda Brewer was on about her fifth trip when 6 News saw her Wednesday afternoon. She was cooking everything herself except the bird. 

"This is the turkey, but instead of a turkey, it's a chicken," Brewer said.

Angie Liske and daughter Hannah just stopped by for some extras. 

"A few last minute things today. We're looking at maybe some more fresh fruit and vegetables," Liske said.

"We've already gotten our turkey so we were just going to get some extra items and also for dinner for tonight," said Cherell and Don Tyson.

Costco is closed Thursday, but open Friday.
