Saving money while shopping for Thanksgiving dinner

Cooking Thanksgiving dinner can be a big - and expensive - task. So, everyone is looking for ways to make the big day a little easier.

Turkey is the centerpiece of many Thanksgiving dinners. You can buy fresh or frozen.

Dillons is helping shoppers the perfect bird for Thursday

"In terms of purchasing your turkey," said Sheila Lowry with Dillons, "we would suggest doing it now rather than later especially if you're buying a frozen bird because that bird needs time to thaw. We do have some instructions at the store you can see with the weight and how long it would take to thaw that turkey."

Dillons is also partnering with KWCH and the Kansas Food Bank to donate food to those in need this Thanksgiving. You can make a donation when you check out.
