WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) – With Christmas just a few days away, many people are rushing to the grocery store to pick up last minute items for their Christmas dinner.

The Big Y in West Springfield was full of people Friday night grabbing food for the big day. Customers told 22News that last-minute grocery shopping is just a part of the holiday season.

Some customers, like Carol from West Springfield, even dressed up for the occasion; “A few years ago, my work wanted to have Santa come to the party, so he bought the costume and now he needs to use it. So this year I get mine so that I could do this, and Santa made my hat.”

Big Y stores will be open until 6:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve, and will be closed on Christmas Day so employees can spend the day with their families.
