We stopped by the Kroger on Sixth Street in Findlay on Monday to see if people were stocking up on the essentials ahead of the snow storm.
The parking lot was packed and the store was definitely busier than usual for a Monday afternoon.
Some of the folks we spoke with said they were just doing their regular shopping but others said they wanted to beat the rush and get what they needed.
We spoke with Jennifer and Clayton, from Findlay, as they were leaving the store.

A teenager died in a house fire in Fostoria over the weekend.
When firefighters arrived at the home at 736 Oaklawn Avenue on Saturday morning, they were told one person was unaccounted for.
Firefighters then found a 14-year-old girl in her bedroom.
They performed life-saving measures on the girl and she was taken to ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Three firefighters suffered minor injuries while battling the blaze.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, but it’s believed that the improper use of a heating appliance started the fire.
