For many people, preparing for the next winter storm means stocking their pantries.

The manager of the Dillon's at 21st and Maize says ever since they opened their doors Sunday, the store has been a madhouse.

We spotted a lot of empty shelves in the store. The fresh produce, dairy, bread, and canned goods aisles looked especially bare.

The checkout lines were stretched all the way back to the aisles.

Customers we spoke with said they wanted to do their grocery shopping Sunday, before the snow starts falling again.

“We were in fear of the school closing tomorrow so we thought we'd buy something special for the kids in case they had to stay home,” grocery shopper Ted Neises said.

"It has just been a madhouse all day long yesterday. We had a great day but today has just been out of this world it's just been incredible,” store manager Wes Casey said.

The manager tells us the busiest day of the year for them is Christmas Eve but he expects Sunday's sale numbers to rival that.
