Isaac Threat Moves Bottled Water from Dunedin Store Shelves
Shoppers stocked up on bottled water and paper supplies at Dunedin grocery stores Saturday in preparation for Tropical Storm (and probable hurricane) Isaac.
Shelves at Dunedin's grocery stores were clearing out late Saturday as residents prepared for the possibility of hurricane Isaac.
Bottled water and paper products were still in supply, but going fast from the shelves at the Publix Super Market at Granada Plaza and Sweetbay Super Market off State Road 580 in Dunedin by Saturday evening.
Dunedin Patch Facebook followers also reported that the shelves at Walmart Neighborhood Market were nearly empty.
