NEW YORK (AP) - Across New York City, supermarket shelves were emptying out as shoppers hustled to buy last-minute supplies.

Shopping cart gridlock descended Monday at Fairway, the gourmet grocery on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

The meat shelves were all but bare.

Nervous, annoyed customers shoved past each other. One frustrated woman muttered, “I can’t take this.”

Outside on Broadway, the checkout line stretched for a block as the wind and snow picked up.



Store employees said Fairway was busier than it is even for Christmas.

Myriam Zecco wasn’t there because of the storm. She was on her regular Monday shopping excursion.

She laughed as she watched the crowd scene, observing that “Fairway is not going to disappear.”
