A store that has served customers for decades is struggling to keep its doors open after storms devastated many.
Ken's Market, located along Hudson Avenue, has two generators to power coolers and two freezers and a chance for customers to charge their phones.
"They don't really have cars in this area, those that do can get out and get food," Owner Chris Sebasta said. "Those that don't have cars, we're trying to stay open and help them."
Sebasta said that a notable struggle of the outages is the edgy nature of customers.
"They're frustrated, they're hot, they're tired," Sebasta said. "They're wondering when we're gonna get power."
Stephanie Heminger had the same question as she tried to soothe her son, Logan.
"It's horrible," Heminger, a mother of two, said. "Keeping the kids busy with nothing to do, trying to keep everybody calm."
AEP is estimating five more days of misery for many residents. The prospect of another week seems too much to take for many.
"I don't know if I can do it," Sebasta said. "I've been staying in the store, sleeping on air mattresses to protect the store. It's been frustrating and tiring."
AEP crews have been clocking 16-hour days to restore power to thousands of residents.
