BROOKLYN - Brooklyn residents are stocking up on supplies ahead of what could turn out to be a major snowstorm this weekend.

At the City Fresh Market in Starrett City, shoppers checked out staples like bread and water. 

Others chose nonperishables like chicken soup.

Store managers say they don't anticipate running out of anything. Although the supply of bottled water was running low, extra shipments were on the way.

A lot of residents said they were stocking up so they didn't have to come out again in the snow.

Should they choose to, the supermarket says it will be open Saturday.
