Need supplies? Running a generator while you wait for power to be restored? We’ve polled our readers and other sources to find out which local grocery stores and gas stations are open. Please share additions in the comments below.
Be patient, be generous, and be safe – we are all in this together and we will do best if we take care of each other!
Please be aware of price gouging as local supplies are limited. Altering prices during times of need and hardship is illegal, yet it seems as though some businesses are price gouging. If you come across an instance of price gouging, please report it to the state hotline at (862)209-1030 or (973)220-3474.
