Shopping ahead of the storm
As Tropical Storm Nate approaches, residents across the Gulf Coast are stocking up.
Stores like Sam’s Club and Academy Sports are expecting customers throughout the weekend to get prepared for the storm with supplies and other necessities.
Academy Sports Gulfport Manager Matt Fasler explains why it is important the store remains opens for residents. “Just to keep them prepared with necessities and such we have things like propane stoves that way they can still cook with their family if need be and that way we can take care of the community, try to get the right items for them. This store was open during Katrina. It was rebuilt and we came back strong and that’s why we are here for our great customers that we’ve always had.”
The Edgewater Mall in Biloxi will close tonight at 9 p.m. and reopen Sunday at noon.
