Long Islanders stock up on Thanksgiving goods early to avoid missing out, overpaying

Nationwide inflation and supply chain issues are leaving stores empty and prices soaring ahead of the holiday that focuses on food.
Many Long Islanders are shopping early this year to avoid missing out on the holiday staples or overpaying.

Even some of the smaller items on your Thanksgiving table this year might be a little bit more expensive, like cranberry sauce, or even pumpkin.
The American Farm Bureau Federation says Thanksgiving dinner will cost families 14% more this year. Some shoppers say they don't go all out, they buy just what they need.
