From salt to shovels, winter weather supplies are flying off the shelves as folks get ready for the snow.

Home improvement and hardware stores all across the Bluegrass are packed with customers, trying to beat the storm.

Places like Lowe's in Hamburg are already starting to see a rush of customers trying to get supplies as they get ready for another round of snow.

Homeowners and business owners were among the many getting in line for supplies, including the owner of Lexington's Parkette Drive-In restaurant, Randy Kaplan.

Kaplan says with the unique style of his restaurant, getting ready for the storm was critical. Many of his employees are car hops, who need to walk in and out of the restaurant to deliver food customers.

In preparation for a rush of customers, many stores are doing what they can to make the shopping experience easier, by making supplies more accessible. Store managers they try to keep up with demand at the same time.

Places like here at Lowe's say while supplies are running out, they are getting more shipments each day.
