At the time of the terrorists attacks many of the supermarkets across the US were overwhelmed with people rushing to the stores to buy food, water, and rice krispy treats.

I suspect they mean the management at the New York Stock Exchange which is part of the Wall Street area money management center in the area of the World Trade Center.
I do not recall if they halted trading on the stock exchange but assume they did. Try google for NYSE and World Trade Center and terrorist.
Here is a tiny bit of what I found:

ok after re-reading i uaserdtnnd the 13th grade dealio a little more haha, and i know what you mean by staying in your comfort zone. but that has nothing to do with going out of state. I could have gone half way around the world and never tried anything new (except maybe the food) I could have gone to UWWC and stepped out of my comfort zone as much as i already have this year. Its more a matter of taking advantage of opportunities rather then spending extra $$ to go one state away
