Krogers grocery stores in Sandusky and Port Clinton, as well as Bassett's Market in Port Clinton had an uptick in people stocking up on supplies.
"Everyone is just trying to get their grocery shopping done," said Bassetts general manager Mark Keller. "People are preparing to hunker down for the next couple of days."
He said people bought basic food items and 24-packs of bottled water.
Chuck Allendorf, owner of the Ace Hardware store in Port Clinton, said his customers bought extra batteries for flashlights as well as sump pumps.
Unfortunately the store does not carry generators or it could have sold a few, he said.
