    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - This was not your typical slow Thursday at the grocery store. Store shelves have grown bare as people stock up for the storm.

    "I was surprised the parking lot outside is crazy, people are lined up waiting for a spot," said shopper Rebecca Krupsaw.

    "It is wild," said shopper Debbie Kincaid. "I'm here along with everyone else trying to get our last minute supplies for the ice storm."

    At the Kroger on North Polk street, people stocked up on those non-perishables like soup, cereal, and even toilet paper.

    "We ordered extra water here and we got to replenish again!" said store manager Richard Caldwell.
    "We had a lot of bread ordered because we knew that the storm was coming so we got a lot of bread replenishment coming."

    "I try to get things that I don't necessarily have to put in the oven if we end up losing power," Kincaid said.

    The store saw so many customers today that they ran out of shopping carts! Caldwell said Wednesday's profits doubled what the store had expected.

    "We had record days yesterday and it's probably going to be another record day for us today," Caldwell said.
