CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Businesses slowed down by the winter storm are reopening and dealing with two days of lost time and money.

Hillbilly Produce Market on Independence Boulevard closed its doors Tuesday due to the weather and accessibility issues into their parking lot.

Owner Marshall Surface and an employee spent Friday morning shoveling the snow and ice out of their lot.

He sold out of firewood before the storm started. That s why some tables are bare.

But customers didn't come for his apples, oranges, onions and garlic while the worst winter storm in a decade hammered Charlotte.

It will hurt especially when you are selling produce, so your produce is now three days older when you've been shut down and we got to go in here and go through it and do the best we can, probably reduce a good bit of it, Surface said.

He is now in the process of re-stocking his supplies.
