Since last year’s holidays were still caught in the shadow of the pandemic, many families had smaller gatherings than usual. This year, however, people are apparently planning on making it up.

Sam’s Club announced its 2021 holiday plans and says that it'll see a return of "families and friends reuniting" for seasonal celebrations. In a press release sent to Fox News, the company confirmed that it is moving many of its holiday food packages back to pre-pandemic sizes.

When it comes to turkeys, Sam’s Club will be carrying a larger selection of its heavier birds that weigh 18 pounds or more. The company did say that it will still carry the same size range as last year with birds weighing 10 to 24 pounds.

The company also has several other holiday specials planned.
