LEXINGTON, OH - Main Street Market has seen a spike in sales as families flock to the shop in preparation for this weekend's winter storm.

"I'd say we're up about thirty percent," said Josh Ingram, Perishable Manager at Main Street Market. "Kroger's running out of groceries, Wal-Mart's running out of groceries... people are panicking. We have plenty down here!"

Lines have been growing for several days but Ingram says there is still plenty of food left for those who have yet to stock up. Items like milk, bread, meat, and non-perishables are commonly purchased goods when people are at risk of being snowed into their homes. Ingram recommends that shoppers head to the store Friday before conditions become too dangerous to drive in.

Several customers of Main Street Market, such as Josh and Haley Shutt, are making a last-minute trip to Main Street Market before this weekend's storm to do just that.

"I'm just here to get some shopping done," Josh explained. "We're pretty much just getting stuff ready before this big storm I've been hearing about. Right now, we're just getting some water, milk... essentials, and stuff, just to make sure that I don't get caught in the storm. That would be just really horrible."
