Don't forget these 5 items when shopping for hurricane supplies
But there are a number of items you may need that don't necessarily come to mind at the store. The initiative, a partnership between News4Jax and Ace Hardware, is designed to help you get an early start on hurricane preparations, tailor shopping lists to fit your needs and save money while you're at it. News4Jax and Ace Hardware looked at what items were in demand in the days leading up to and after Hurricane Irma struck Florida. "We're thrilled the terrific local owners at our 26 neighborhood ACE Hardware stores want to help get all of us ready too. Our shared goal is for all Jacksonville area residents to get ready early, and the ACE Hardware Store in your neighborhood is offering significant money savings to help."
