Winter Storm Grayson: Who’s Open In Newport, RI During The Bomb Cyclone

By  |  0 Comments

Newport is experiencing quite the blizzard. Here’s a quick glance at who is open for business and who’s already closed.

The first weeks of January are a funny time for blizzards in Newport. There are a lot of businesses that can be open…but the question is who wants to bother, considering that there are few tourists in town and a good chunk of the year-round population splits town for a well-deserved vacation. Our post on where to get blasted in a Newport blizzardΒ is a good guide for the spots that are reliably open. We’ve taken a quick survey through the social media channels to see who is open and plans to stay that way and who’s announced that they’re already closed.

If you are in an emergency situation, there is shelter available at Gaudet Middle School in Middletown.

If you’re not in an emergency situation, then blizzards can be a good time in Newport. Bridge Liquors is open…

Businesses That Are Closed

Anyway, as is so often the case, there’s little to do but Neflix and chill or head out to the nearest blizzard party. Have fun and remember to get your shoveling done early before everything freezes this weekend.
