Grocery will probably be busy today AND tomorrow... quite a few people do their cooking the day before, it seems. Your best bet to avoid the rush is to go as early as you can, or, if it's a 24/7 store, as late - even if they're cleaned out, if you can go at night, they've usually started restocking by then, and the crowds are smaller. :) I go late to avoid crowds.

Go early in the day. I need to pick up a few of the fresh items for Thursday, but can't go until Wed. I am out of town tomorrow, so it has to be Wed. I plan to go pretty much the moment I wake up. 

I may even just go late tomorrow night when I get home, like 10-11pmish. That might be easier.

Go early in the morning or late at night after the kids are in bed.  You bet it's going to be busy!  I would expect some things to be out of stock, too.
