Texomans are scrambling once again to stores to stock up on items to get them through the forecasted winter storm.
At Market Street, managers conveniently located cans of deicers at the registers.
But that's not the only thing shoppers are stocking up on.
Long lines of customers are turning this grocery store into a one-stop-shop to purchase items to prepare for the upcoming storm.

"They're getting food.  Nobody wants to be caught at home without food.  Fire logs.  Ice melt.  Everybody's talking about ice.  We've got ice melt.  Everybody's buying that.  A little bit of everything," says Larry Martin, Market Street store director.

Managers says shoppers have also been stocking up on wood for their fireplaces.
Other popular purchases include gloves, hats, scarves, thermal wear and blankets.
Shoppers have also been buying homes items, like pipe and outdoor faucet covers and generators to keep warm in case of a power outage.
