Tropical supermarket chains including Acapula Tropical supermarket and supermarket chain shoprite have both reopened in the city of Acapolcos after being shut down for several days due to Tropical Storm Harvey, which dumped more than 2 inches of rain on the area.
Acapulcos Tropical supermarket has been reopened to the public, while shoprite is scheduled to reopen later this week.
Both supermarkets have been closed since Monday.
The two chains have been shut down since Aug. 26 due to Harvey.
The Acapuls Tropical supermarket is owned by Aguayo de Acapaulos, who also owns storerite, according to The Associated Press.
The shoprite has been operating in the same location since its opening.
The stores closed after Hurricane Harvey hit, but storerite’s owners said they hoped to reopen on Thursday.
“I hope that I can reopen again, because it’s a miracle that we were able to survive Hurricane Harvey,” Aguayolos said.
“I hope it will be a miracle.”
The AP previously reported that Acapulinos Tropical storerite is also set to reopen.
Aguayolas said he would need to be at the grocery store for three weeks before he could be back at work, and said he was planning to travel to Mexico to pick up some supplies.
In a statement, storerite said it is preparing for a full restoration, with a new staff, a new store and a new menu.
