TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - People rushed to the grocery store days before Hurricane Irma to buy food that would withstand a power outage.

WTXL talked a local store working to refill their shelves.

Before Hurricane Irma hit, people flocked to stores like the food giant here in Woodville to load up on canned goods and water. And now as you can see the stores are busy stocking shelves to make sure you have what you need.

A manager says when Hurricane Hermine hit last year, this store was shut down for about 24 hours and that was the case again this year.

Now that the doors are open again, it was a very busy morning for shoppers, but some of the shelves are still empty.

The most requested item has been bread, but the store still isn't sure when that's coming in. With other cases of shipment coming in, the manager says that she's still trying to get things back to normal.

"They can come here," said Janet Fruggiero, a manager at Food Giant. "I ain't got much, but they can still come. I'm trying to get it in."

Although the shelves are empty right now, the store manager says they're working as quickly as possible to get you what you'll need.

The manager says they're expecting a delay in bread delivery since it comes from Jacksonville.
