SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- It was a case of the early bird getting the worm at Jerry's Home Improvement in Springfield, the store sold out of many winter supplies in a matter of hours.
Employes said they had customers coming in as early as 7:00 a.m. on Monday morning looking for winter goods. By noon they had sold out of snow shovels, ice melt, propane heaters, and generators.
Vicky Drummond traveled from Vida to the store with the hopes of buying a generator.
"We've had probably about four trees come down in our yard," said Drummond. "They are on top of cars and houses, it's just insane up there"
At last check, it was unclear when the store would get restocked.
