(WBRE/WYOU) — Before the storm hit, some folks headed out to the supermarket rather than wait until travel became tricky.
That’s what we found at a Schiel’s Family Market in Wilkes-Barre. Not many shoppers were out late Saturday morning but some who did were just looking for a few essentials.
“Cereal, water, milk, stuff for my kids,” Alyssa Otero of Wilkes-Barre said.
“Mostly water for the kids. You know, my snacks or something I can chew on. That’s it basically,” Oswaldo Otero of Wilkes-Barre said.
The manager of Schiel’s says additional staff was brought on and inventory was increased all because of this first widespread snow of the new year.
