Before people settle in with family and friends they like to make sure they have all the right supplies for a good Christmas. 

"I have some family in town and I'm trying to get the last minute stuff that we need," said Cheryl Stenzel, shopping at a Dahl's.

Stenzel's one of many shopping at grocery stores across the metro.

"I'm looking for potatoes, sweet potatoes, and some fruit," she said.

Supermarkets see a big rush since almost every store closes Christmas Day.

"We opened at six o'clock today and we've been pretty busy ever since," said Pat Childress, a Dahl's manager.

According to Childress, their popular last minute items include baked goods, meats and fruits.
