PLYMOUTH, Minn. (WCCO) – Some metro businesses with power are allowing people to come in and charge their cell phones.

All Cub Foods stores have power strips set up at the service desk to let shoppers recharge as they buy food.

Craig Striech is manager of the store in Plymouth

“Very early this morning we had customers calling up obviously without power at their homes, and just asking if stopped in if we’d allow them to plug in and charge their cell phone up,” Striech said.

He says they are also selling a lot of ice, but they are sold out of flash lights and are running low on batteries.
