“We are doubling and tripling our orders on what would have normally come into the store. So we have people, like temporary workers, coming in and helping us keep it stocked. So as it’s going off the shelf, we’re trying to get it right back on,” Carter said.
Carter told 59 News people do not need to worry, grocery stores will be open during this time.
