Customers at Sam’s Club in Harker Heights on Saturday were greeted with empty meat counters and cooler/freezer doors that were covered in cardboard, preventing entry.

Employees told a customer that Friday evening’s strong storms caused the power to go out some time before the store closed at 8 p.m.

Another employee told a customer that a bolt of lightning had struck the store, though that was unconfirmed.

A manager could not say when the shelves would be restocked. She also declined to say how much meat had been lost.

As of 3 p.m. Saturday, the meat cases were still empty, but operations in the rest of the store appeared to be unaffected.
