CHICAGO (CBS) — Not only is the salt bag that many homeowners bought three years ago gone, in many cases, so is the bag that replaced it as the cycle of snow-freeze-thaw continues.
Buying the next bag may be a bit of a problem.
Bob Barkemeyer at Wilmette’s Linden True Value Hardware said Tuesday that he is having problems getting new supplies, especially the smaller jugs.
“It seems like our suppliers are running out,” Barkemeyer said. “We’ve tried to order from a couple of different ones for the last two weeks and they have very, very limited supplies and it’s kind of catch as catch can.”
