BEDFORD-STUYVESANT -

Brooklyn stores have seen an influx of customers as the fourth nor'easter this month approaches the city.

The storm will bring heavy, wet snow to the borough, with the greatest impacts expected during the Wednesday evening rush. Road conditions will be messy and hazardous.

The K Gourmet Deli on Fulton Street in Bed-Stuy saw plenty of shoppers stocking up on essentials such as milk, bread, canned goods and snacks ahead of the storm.

The owner of Prosperity Hardware Store, also in Bed-Stuy said March is usually a busy month for him. He said the shop is ready to help anyone coming for snow supplies, as he keeps a full stock at this time of year.

Earlier in the day, News 12 was at a hardware store in Marine Park, whose owner said he was glad to see snow in the forecast.

He said he could use the business since the past three storms weren't as snow-heavy as predicted. He asked that customers come in and pick up a shovel and a bag of salt just in case.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said all city public schools would be closed Wednesday.
