    Whether you're a fan of greens, pies or mac and cheese, we can all agree, Thanksgiving wouldn't be "Thanksgiving" without the turkey. (Published Thursday, Nov. 17, 2016)

    Whether you're a fan of greens, pies or mac and cheese, we can all agree, Thanksgiving wouldn't be "Thanksgiving" without the turkey.

    NBC 5 Responds went to five local grocery stores and found that most of the prices for turkeys are pretty close.

    But at Kroger, with its Kroger Plus Card, you can snag a frozen bird for just $.49 per pound.

    If you're hosting a big group, Albertson's has a buy one get one free turkey deal.

    If you want some of the work done for you, Walmart may be the place to get a frozen smoked turkey. And at $2.48 per pound they've got the best price, by just a penny over their competitors.

    Now, if you're planning on wearing your Cowboys jersey on Sunday, keep that jersey on and head over to Albertson's or Tom Thumb. You get 10 percent off your groceries at these stores for sporting the silver and blue.
