Nashville grocery stores busy ahead of snow forecast

NASHVILLE, Tenn (WTVF) – Snow is forecast for Thursday and that means people are packing their bags at grocery stores for essentials.

Thursday morning will start with a chance for a rain-snow mix along and south of I-40 which will quickly change to all snow by mid-morning.

The snow will last until Thursday evening, likely bringing about 2-3 inches of accumulation with higher amounts for areas northeast of Nashville in the higher elevations.

This news brought shoppers to Compton’s Foodland in South Nashville.

“I collected firewood but no bread or milk,” Sam said. “It’s a bit silly. I’m a boy from Alabama who went to New England and lived in there. Washington State I have spent most of my life in New England so I don’t speak well, and unless you measure snow in feet I don’t mind at all. “

Few people wanted to risk the weather on Thursday and decided to take a trip to the grocery store.

But they found long lines and almost empty shelves as customers scurried to grab whatever they needed.

“The parking lot was pretty full but everyone is prepared for the worst and hopes for the best,” said one buyer. “So smart for those who are.”

The employees were quick to restock the shelves and have customers checked in an orderly fashion.
