Restaurants are not alone with seeing an influx in business that goes hand-in-hand with the Super Bowl. Grocery stores see their share of busy business Super Bowl weekend, too.
This year, Super Bowl weekend combined with the first of the month and a heavy snow fall on Saturday to make a "perfect storm" for the Foodland on Spring Street in Charleston.
Around 12:30 p.m. Saturday, the snow had started falling and people were packing into the store.
"(During snow) it'll stay busy until it gets dark," Manager Jeff Haynes said. "And then people don't want to go out after it gets dark."
Popular food for the Super Bowl include frozen pizza, wings, chips and dip as well as the store's party trays of cheese and crackers or veggies.
Beer is another big seller.
"You can't buy alcohol until 1 p.m. on Sundays and you'll get people in here at 9 a.m. trying to buy it," Haynes said.
Cris Spradling, of Mink Shoals, shopped for some game day snacks with his twin sons Cameron and Ethan, both 16.
"(Their) mom is doing some grocery shopping and we came to get a couple things for the game," Spradling said. The three had picked up a veggie tray and chips.
They aren't planning a party, Spradling said.
"We'll probably just have some snacks while the game is on," he said.
The Foodland bakery made Super Bowl-inspired sweets for the big game. Customers can choose from 49ers or Ravens cakes and cookies. The bakery has been making the treats for about a week.
Betty Nester, a decorator at the bakery, said the cakes are very popular.
"We had one lady come in and buy 12 at a time," Nester said.
