ABINGTON, Mass. (AP) — While most businesses shut down early so workers could get home before the brunt of the snowstorm, some stayed open and were doing a brisk business.
Rosie’s Liquors in Abington did about five times its normal business Friday as customers snapped up 30-packs of beer, multiple bottles of wine and every bottle of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum in the store.
Manager Kristen Brown said it’s ‘‘almost been like Christmas’’ in the store.
Gas stations were also mobbed with customers filling their tanks. At Abington Sunoco, owner James Stone said they had run through almost their whole supply of regular gas and are saving the last of it for snowplow drivers.
The snowstorm is expected to dump 1 to 3 feet of snow along the New York-to-Boston corridor.
