Grocery store shoppers made their lists and checked them twice. Plenty of people made a trip to the grocery store today to prepare for Christmas dinner and possible snow in the area in the next 24 hours.

“I’m stocking up on cookie supplies and ingredients to make soups and sandwiches,” said on shopper.

Loretta Broadstreet told FOX23 that she drove to Tulsa to grocery shop from Mannford to make sure she had a sufficient amount of food in her pantry to sustain through the end of the week,

“I’m getting milk, water, break, sandwich meat, chili supplies just things I know I will need if I can’t get out,” said Broadstreet.

Broadstreet says that the 07’ ice storm is still fresh in her mind and you can never be too prepared.

“I’m ready, I’ve got what I need,” said Broadstreet.

The store manager of Reasors in Midtown told FOX23 that many shoppers stocked up on staple items like bread and milk in addition to outdoor equipment like shovels and salt used for de-icing.

Mikki France said that she wasn’t looking forward to fighting the crowd but once she got inside of the store the atmosphere was great.

“The shopping needed to get done,” said France. She said she bought items for the holiday meal and in case there is a snow storm.

“You just never know what we are going to get,” said France.

Most stores close early on Christmas Eve. Reasor’s closes at 6 p.m. but will re-open at 6 a.m. December 26th. Some Wal-Mart locations close at 7 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
