Thanksgiving is just days away and there are still some places in Avon and the area that you can get your turkey.
You may want to place your order as soon as possible because some businesses, like The Meat House, have reported running out and needing to order more. The Fresh Market, Avon's new grocery store, is taking orders until the end of the business day Tuesday for pick-up by Wednesday. Neither will be open on Thanksgiving Thursday.
