On average, Americans will spend $48.90 for Thanksgiving dinner in 2018 to feed 10 people according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.

So ABC11 did some comparison shopping to see how a few local stores stacked up.

On the shopping list, a 15-pound turkey, a box of stuffing, a can of cranberry sauce, a 5-pound bag of potatoes, a jar of gravy, a pumpkin pie or equivalent fruit pie, two cans of green beans, a bag of corn, a dozen rolls, and whipped cream.

Here's how they stacked up (from most to least expensive):

  • Trader Joe's $51.72

  • Harris Teeter $45.43

  • Walmart $39.80

  • Target $32.33

  • Lidl $29.24
