"I've got candy here," says Marvin Shives who is preparing for the storm. "You never know when you have candy to maintain your sugar levels."
"Some canned goods, things that'll keep for awhile that don't have to be refrigerated things like that some extra cat food for the cat," says Sue Teeter, preparing for the storm.
Grocery stores like Weis have prepared for the increase in shoppers and are making sure their shelves are stocked with what usual weather emergency supplies, like toilet paper, canned goods and milk.
"Staple items would always increase like bananas and stuff of that nature and surprisingly hamburger, but if you lose your power it's not necessarily the best items to have," says Stanley Mallow, Weis manager.
Hardware stores also say they've seen an increase in people getting flashlights, batteries and generators.
While some have planned ahead for the storm to hit, others are just waiting for it to pass.
"Not at all," says Pache Wagner, customer. "I just depend on what I have in my house."
