The wet weather in Cape Girardeau, Missouri did not slow down last minute grocery shoppers on Wednesday.

Some shoppers Heartland News talked to outside Schnucks said it has busiest shopping day they have seen all year.

Parking lots were packed and carts were crammed full of the holiday essentials.

Some shopped for their entire holiday meals. Others just picked up a few items.

Some shared their shopping experiences.

"It was wonderful. There's lots of carts but people are very friendly," shopper Cathy Clippard said.

"I've been to the grocery store Monday, Tuesday, and now Wednesday," said shopper Glen Roberts. "They've all been bad."

Workers were busy keeping shelves full and lines moving.

Some stores closed early, while others stayed open late for even later last minute shoppers.
