Not sure what to stock up on before Hurricane Sandy hits?
Just call the Chevy Chase Supermarket Emergency Broadcast System at 301-656-5133 to get all the details.
"We activate this system for those once-in-a-lifetime events, and those events seem to happen every six months in this area," supermarket co-owner Kevin Kirsch said on the pre-recorded message of the broadcast system when Patch called the number at 1:30 p.m. Friday.
"We just want you to know that we're prepared and we're ready to go. We've got the flashlights, the batteries, the water and—more importantly for these storms—we've got the candy and the potato chips," he added.
"We update this message regularly with important information—everything you need to know to fight a storm," the message concluded.
Chevy Chase Supermarket was hit hard by this past summer's violent storm, but it bounced back into business once the power was restored—several days later.
