"It has been like a holiday all over again," said a store manager at the Albertsons in Sherman, when talking about business over the past two days.


The biggest sellers at local grocery stores have been milk, bread, eggs, bottled water, batteries, water, canned chili, and snack foods.


"Snack foods, lots of snack foods," said Denece Erickson, store manager for the Albertsons grocery story in Denison.


"Chili was the big winner this time," said a store manager at the Kroger grocery store in Sherman.


Kroger has also been getting deliveries, although delays are expected, he said.


All three stores report that they are open, with minimal staffing. Green Market is closed for the day.
