The major players in the food game,e.g. Krogers , Publix etc always give you a good deal..they,re always wanting to get new shoppers and they want you to come back…and they cook it fresh too!

My relatives used to get the turkey from Morrison’s on North Druid Hills and it was always good.

I would love to know of a place that has a nice, deliciously moist turkey that can be purchased. My only complaint about turkey is the dryness of it. I guess I’ve never had a really good one.
