Got your milk & bread? Knoxville stores selling supplies fast

By  | 

Knoxville (WVLT) It's almost comical, but often times during the threat of snow or ice, there's a run on milk, bottled water, and bread at the store.

Volunteer TV's Liz Tedone has more.

Grocery traffic has been steady for the past hour.

We went inside to check out the bread and milk supply.

Obviously there are some bare spots on the shelf.

There are five lines at the checkout, up to five people deep at times.

Perhaps a sign that snow is in the forecast.

Managers here say they're beefing up the staff.

Debbie Manning with the Fresh Market says, "so we can get everybody in and out. We have a manager working up front, and we have another cashier coming in as well."

The Fresh Market closes at nine.

At this point, managers say they do not plan to close early, although it will be snowing when their employees leave.
