Hermon grocery store stocked and ready for shoppers before storm

HERMON, Maine (WABI) - More snow means a trip to the grocery store.

At Danforths Down Home Supermarket in Hermon, store manager Brett Danforth says they've been ready for the latest storm.

"We talked with our vendors and made sure we had the right things in place," says Danforth.

Along with keeping the shelves stocked, keeping an eye on conditions is also a top priority.

"We take it hour by hour. We like to look at the weather. We like to balance being a provider of service to the community but also getting our people home safe," says Danforth.

And, we know how people love to joke about how certain items fly off the shelves before a storm like bread, milk, eggs.

"It's a good store. We like it. We always come here," says Rydell Gist of Levant.

"I'm eight months pregnant, so we hit the store all the time," says Katelynn Demmons of Levant.

"A few last minute things, mostly for my little girl to make sure she has snacks tonight, but mostly we stocked up a couple days before," says Nicole Rowe of Hermon.

"Since they've been here it's been great. I love it," says Paula Joy of Hermon.

And, not to worry. Danforth says they'll most likely be open the day after the storm.

"Give us a call first and make sure that we are open, but at this point, I don't think we've missed opening on time in the four years that I've been runnning the store," says Danforth.

He says they will be closing at 7pm Tuesday night.
