Stocking Up For Winter Weather

With the sub-zero temperatures and more snow on the way, Riesbeck’s Store Director, Rich Daugherty, said it was a hectic day.

"A lot of people with the forecast coming up, concerned more about the temperatures than anything," Daugherty explained. "Some of them are worried about power outages so they’re in here buying some canned goods in case the power does go out."

Daugherty said safety candles, milk, bottled water, bread, batteries and rock salt were also big sellers on Sunday. When the weather gets bad, Daugherty said there’s always an increase in business.

"We try to watch the forecast and anticipate it, order extra salt, milk , bread and so forth so that we are prepared for that business if it should happen."

If you still have to pick up water, food, salt, shovels, or any other items you’ll need for the storm, Riesbeck’s is open until midnight on Sunday and will open back up at 6 a.m. Monday.
