Ice storm affects local grocery stores

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - Representatives from Kroger spoke with WFXG today and said stores in Augusta received help from Atlanta to make sure stores were supplied with food.

In a statement Kroger said "Kroger store, merchandising and logistic teams worked very hard to fully replenish our shelves in the Augusta area. Food safety is first and foremost, and due to massive power outages, significant quantities of perishable product needed to be discarded and replaced with fresh, new product."
