Shoppers pack stores in preparation for snow storm


With how the last storm turned out, shoppers aren't taking any chances.
Grocery stores around the area are already seeing an influx of people stocking up.

A steady crowd of shoppers could be seen at Don's Valley Market in Rapid Valley, grabbing those last minute groceries to get them through the coming days.

Shelves with the most popular items such as bread, are already running low, if not empty in some cases.

Assistant Manager Jon Henriksen says, before a major storm, the store usually sees twice the business as a normal day.

Even fully staffed, he says they can have trouble keeping up, and customers could be facing long check out lines.
"Whenever there's a storm warning, it always gets busier around here. The last storm we picked up quite a bit," says Henriksen.
"They pretty much stock up on milk and bread and munchies and chips and pop and anything they can that's going to get them through a couple of days," says Lavonne Baliet a cashier at Don's.
Henriksen anticipates a rush after the five o'clock work whistle.
