NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Yesterday was one of the busiest shopping Tuesdays in recent memory.

According to Kroger officials, you can thank an approaching snow storm and people’s need to prepare for sales that were double normal.

On Wednesday, mid-state stores restocked shelves while intrepid souls braved slippery roads to get much needed supplies.

“I poured me a bowl of cereal opened the fridge and had no milk,” said shopper Matt Hardin.

Roger Sherman says he wasn’t thrilled at driving to the store this morning but he had little choice.

“I said, ‘Do I have to go out?’ I looked at my pantry and said yes,” Sherman explained.

While Kroger restocks its shelves, another wintery blast is expected Friday.

The company told News 2 on Tuesday when winter weather comes, their plan shifts to accommodate. They order more things like milk, bread, and other snow “supplies” and also change employees’ schedules to accommodate the rush.
