BELMONT -

Shoppers flooded Arthur Avenue shops Wednesday to pick up last-minute items for Thanksgiving dinner.

The counter at Mike's Deli was filled as dozens waited for their orders. Owner David Grecco said it was one of the busiest days of the year for him.

Some even came from other states to pick up cold cuts, cheeses and more.

Customers said the long lines were worth the wait.
