Charleston area Publix grocery stores reopened at noon on Saturday. Welcome news for those who've eaten through their stash of hurricane snacks. 

Harris Teeter reopened some of its area stores at noon Saturday: the James Island location across from Lowe's, the Dorchester Road location in Summerville, the Sam Rittenberg location in West Ashley and the downtown store on East Bay Street. 

Costco opened at noon on Saturday while Doscher's opened at 7 a.m. in West Ashley and will stay open until 4 p.m.

Bi-Lo stores opened Saturday afternoon.

Many restaurants and bars that had stayed open through the week ended up running out of food and other supplies as the days wore on and crowds continued to show up. 

Adrienne Ciaburri said Congress in Mount Pleasant stayed open as long as they could, but by Saturday morning they were out of food and will be closed until Tuesday.

The pop-up Kwei Fei was so busy on Friday night that they couldn’t prepare enough food to justify opening on Saturday. “We got pummeled last night,” said chef David Schuttenberg.

The Royal American announced on social media that they had run out of "food, beer, staff and booze" and would be closed down on Saturday but try to reopen on Sunday. Blind Tiger was in a similar situation and won't be opening Saturday.

Weston Fennell of Limehouse Produce said they’ve been delivering produce all week to those who’ve placed orders.

Jacques Larson has been able to open both Wild Olive and Obstinate Daughter all week with produce from Limehouse and fish from Crosby’s Seafood. 

Bonefish Grill also remained open all week, preparing by stocking up on produce from Restaurant Depot and other suppliers. They also fed more than 100 first responders on Thursday. Bonefish will remain open on Saturday and Sunday. 

Robert Patterson of Sticky Fingers said they have been open all week and will remain open. "Since we’ve been through this in years past and knew that we would remain open to feed the National Guard and first responders, we increased the amount of product we ordered on the last delivery truck that was able to get to Charleston," he said. "And a big thanks to Publix for staying open because we pretty much emptied their shelves on other items that we ran out of throughout the week."

Daps Breakfast & Imbibe closed on Friday to re-stock and reopened Saturday morning at 8 a.m. in partnership with Semilla to offer a special brunch menu with rice bowls, breakfast tacos and pancakes and $3.50 mimosas. They also plan to open on Sunday.
