Grocery Store Best Prices On Thanksgiving Items


I thought it would be nice if I rounded up the best deals for Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland folks on our Thanksgiving groceries. Most of these places offer price match guarantee on turkeys with a competitor’s ad so keep that in mind and don’t run all over the place! I generally pick the best deal and then buy the rest of my groceries there. Saves time and money. I will be stocking up a ton on sweet potatoes and turkey as these freeze great.
