Last-minute grocery shopping for Christmas

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

They're making a list and checking it twice -- valley shoppers head to stores to buy those last-minute ingredients.

As we found out, the grocery store isn't just for last-minute groceries, but for last-minute gifts too.

"Yeah, this is it, nothing says holidays like Imperial margarine," said Nick Tarr.

With lists in hand, valley shoppers hit the grocery stores to snatch up some last-minute ingredients for their holiday favorites.

What's on Nick's list?

"Toilet paper..that's always a newsworthy story -- always important to have for the holidays. Berries, antioxidants that's what Santa requested..wax paper, eggs, margarine, bananas, mushrooms and whatever else I can grab," he said.

As a teen, David Duke worked as a grocer on the holidays.

"I get it, I totally get it.  People need things at the last minute and if no one's open, what do you do? Ruin their Christmas," he said.

And not only can you find last-minute Christmas food here, but last-minute shopping, gift cards from anywhere you can think of.

All are anxious for their holiday favorites to hit the tables.

"We're going to be making some pies for mom and friends," said Tarr.

Some Safeway grocery stores will be open on Christmas if you need some really last-minute ingredients.
