NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – We’ve all heard that when it snows in Nashville people run to Kroger to buy bread and milk, along with other supplies.

Not only is this myth true, Kroger actually has a plan when the weather turns white.

According to spokeswoman Melissa Eads, “When snow is in the forecast, we typically arrange for additional orders of milk to be sent to stores and work to get regular orders on the road earlier to beat the bad weather.”

That resonates with some shoppers News 2 spoke with at the Donelson Kroger on Tuesday.

Jessica Staubs, shopping with her 4-year-old son, said she’d rather be safe than sorry and run out of milk for her family.

“I don’t want to come out when the roads are bad,” said Staubs. “We have three gallons at home. Don’t want to run out, so there was space in the fridge and I said, ‘Got to get more milk.’”

Ricky Sisk from Madonsville, Kentucky, told News 2 he went without milk during a snow storm once, but never again.

His grocery cart was complete with milk, beer, bread and bologna.

“I got caught in a snow storm without milk or beer and I was sad, so I don’t let that happen anymore,” Sisk explained. “If they are talking snow, I go to the store.”

As part of the news snow plan, Kroger also looks at employee schedules to see where additional help is needed to be ready for the snow rush.
