Storm Holes On Grocer Shelves
(2008-01-09)
(ksut) - HOST LEAD: Holes are starting to appear on some area grocery shelves as winter storm closures continue on area highway passes.
KSUT's Victor Locke reports.

VICTOR: At the Ignacio Shur-Value, grocery, business continues near normal with shelves and even the back rooms appearing well stocked.
But a cursory check of some Durango groceries reveals holes on shelves in dairy, meat and produce departments.
There are, however, no reports of glaring shortages of food and other staples, despite the fact area mountain passes have been closed since early last weekend due to the winter storm.
Shur-Value's Paul Davalos says they anticipate problems.
DAVALOS: WE GET THREE PERISHABLE TRUCKS A WEEK FOR MEAT, DELI ITEMS, AND PRODUCE, AND THE GROCERY TRUCKS ARE TWO DAYS A WEEK. WE'RE USUALLY PREPARED, WE LOOK AT THE WEATHER AND MAKE SURE WE PLAN AHEAD, AND OUR LOADS COME IN OUTTA TEXAS, SOMETIMES THERE'S A PROBLEM IN TUCUMCARI, BUT BASICALLY WE ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON THE WEATHER.
Davalos says they often see lots of Durango residents who come to shop when Durango stores run low.
Other commodities, such as snow melt products and shovels, are also hard to find.
From KSUT, I'm Victor Locke.
