Customers pack Lowe’s Home and Garden ahead of winter weather

WINTERVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — The cold is here, which means Lowe’s Home and Garden are running dry of supplies.

Store employees said they have seen dozens of folks coming in to prepare for the Thursday’s winter storm.

Customers packed out the store and stood in long lines on Tuesday.

Lowe’s reassures customers that they are trying to keep the shelves stocked despite the consistently cold temperatures. .

The company continues to order new supplies throughout the winter months and said there are several trucks delivering essential items.

“We’re selling a lot of the ice melt, getting ready for the storm,” said Matthew May, head cashier at Lowes. “A lot of the pipe insulation, a lot of the hot hand and portable heaters, we’re selling a lot of right now.”
