Mantachie, Miss. (WTVA) - Sam's Town Market in Mantahchie has seen a boost in business over the last week due to the coronaviris.
Sam's opened it doors in January and has seen profits double since the coronavirus had landed in the Magnolia State.
"A lot of people are in a panic but we are here to provide some calm," said owner Sam Farris. "We have people to take care of this community and we are going to do that."
On Friday before 1 pm, the store had already been completely restocked twice.
"We are pulling in people from all throughout the area," said Farris. "We have had folks from Tupelo call in this morning. Folks from as far away as Alabama have come here to shop because everybody is looking for ground beef right now."
Sam's is the only grocery in town with fresh produce which has led to the boost from people outside of town.
"Today we put limits on some of our supplies, to make sure it goes further," said Farris. "S A lot of people live paycheck to paycheck, we are living truck to truck right now."
