Need Supplies? Here's What's Open!

Many people are looking for essentials to tide them over until they have electric service again--which for some in Easton and the greater Easton area, may come as late as Monday, Nov. 5, MetEd announced Tuesday night.

But with the problems as widespread as they are, a lot of businesses are closed due to lack of power too.
