From Naples to Fort Myers to Cape Coral and Punta Gorda, our region has been devastated by the category 4 Hurricane Ian that slammed our state on Wednesday.

While recovery efforts are quickly underway, many areas still find themselves without electricity or running water.

Many businesses remain closed or are functioning with limited hours and crews. We have been calling around to get you up-to-date information on what businesses are open to help you stock up on supplies during this critical time.

Below, you’ll find information about grocery stores, hardware stores and other resources that are open to help after the storm.

We will continue to update this list as we gather more information.

Please note conditions are constantly changing, so it’s best to call the stores directly for the most up-to-date information.

SUPPLY DRIVE

Fort Myers: Dwayne Bergmann Interiors HQ, 12195 Metro Parkway. The interior designer is leading a major effort to get supplies to those who need it. At the showroom, they have ~15,000 bottles of water, baby wipes, diapers, feminine hygiene products, paper towels, pet food, granola bars and other essentials.
