In Wall Township early this morning, the 24-hour Acme on Route 35 received a fresh shipment of supplies and employees were re-stocking shelves.

For those who got out early, they were able to get some of the necessities they were looking for, unfortunately, not hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol, but certainly other much needed products.

At last check, the toilet paper is gone from the Acme.
