Shoppers stock up before the storm

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Shoppers all over Kentuckiana are preparing for what could be a record and crippling snow storm Sunday night and into Monday.

WDRB stopped by the Kroger on Brownsboro Road in Louisville to catch up with people stocking up at the store.

Bread, milk, eggs and gas are all hot on shopping lists as hundreds head out before the storm.

Kroger's parking lot seemed more like Christmas, instead of a normal Sunday shopping experience.

“It's challenging,” one woman said. “I circled around a couple of times."

“No parking,” another added. “You just gotta keep going around and around to get a spot."

Inside the store there were long lines and long receipts followed by the sounds of beeping registers and crammed carts.

"It's a little bit more of a madhouse than usual today," one shopper said.

"It's been a little crazy today but we're handling it quite well," store manager Brenda McAlister said.

Her store is a little more hectic than usual. Employees spent the afternoon making sure everything was stocked.

"Milk, bread, eggs, chicken, fruits and veggies," McAlister said.

"As soon as it gets low we run back and grab some more and refill it, and by the time we get that done you can look at another spot and it's low, and you're just chasing it all day long," said Martin Weiter, who has worked at the store for 44 years.

It's the same scenario in the meat department.

One parent made sure her kids were taken care of.

"I've got hamburger meat, spaghetti sauce, spaghetti to stuff to make everything stretch, sandwiches peanut butter," she said.

A store that's normally busy on Sundays can now thank Mother Nature for the last minute rush.

"I got potatoes, bread, milk, eggs, chips," Katherine Brown said. “I'm getting around I made it around. We were bumping into each other in line going here and there; it was drastic.

More shoppers will likely be heading out Sunday night and into Monday morning. Advice from this store?

"Just be patient," McAlister said.
