MASON CITY, Iowa- Groceries stores are busy getting prepared for Thanksgiving on Thursday.
Hy-Vee West in Mason City put together more than 70 meal packages people can pick up on the holiday. Packages include items such as turkey, ham, and prime rib.
Hy-Vee West Food service manager Jane Van Horn said what a lot of people like about the prepped food is how convenient it is on Thanksgiving. “You don’t have any dishes to do, we put it all on pans that can go right in the oven, you don’t have to wash them, like I said it’s all about convenience [for people],” said Van Horn.
Van Horn said there will also be a full Thanksgiving buffet at the store for approximately ten dollars from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday.
She said the store will also be catering to businesses in the area, as well as treatment centers such as Prairie Ridge.
