Thanksgiving Meal Costs

Posted 11/12/2013

By Jackie Nelson

For the last five years, The Hesston Record has tracked the cost of a typical Thanksgiving feast.

This year we once again hit the Hesston Food Market to furnish all the fixings for a traditional feast.  This year, The Record got a sneak-peak at the deals that will be offered at Hesston Food Market Nov. 21 to 27.  The prices for our 2013 Thanksgiving Feast are the future Hesston Food Market Grocery Flyer prices.

Grocery store owner Pat Schill said the weeks surrounding Thanksgiving bring more traffic through the Food Market.

“During Thanksgiving, we get more special orders. It makes it more interesting with more rare demands than our regular business, like smoked turkeys and being closed on Thursday. We have our whole regular week in six days instead of seven,” he said.

With the increase in foot-traffic Schill said he sees many new faces or otherwise infrequent shoppers. 

“It’s always fun seeing a lot more people coming in,” he said.

Schill said the Hesston Food Market is one of several local businesses that offer an essential service to residents.

“Can you imagine Hesston without a grocery store, or the doctors, or eye care, or the pharmacy?” he said.
