How do I find out when shops are reopening from Florence?


While hundreds of grocery stores, drugstores and other retailers in the Carolinas were shut down on Saturday for Tropcial Storm Florence, many are expected to reopen on Sundays.

"You have our promise that, for those closed businesses, we will open them again to serve you as soon as it is safe." Food Lion posted on its website.

Some, including Harris Teeter stores, will have shorter hours.

"Bad weather and compulsory evacuations related to Hurricane Florence have resulted in Harris Teeter closing or changing opening hours for certain locations," the company said in a statement on the website.

One of the easiest ways to find out if larger grocery chains and stores have reopened is to check online. Retailers regularly post updates when stores open and change opening hours.

Walmart also recommends customers check the local store's Facebook pages for hours.
