YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – As Valley residents begin to chip away at all that ice left on driveways and sidewalks, many are finding that much needed rock salt is in very short supply.
A call so local box stores resulted in only three that had rock salt in supply. Lowe’s in Youngstown had a few bags left and Home Depot in Austintown just received a new shipment.
Employees at Wal-Mart in Poland put a pallet of 20 bags on the floor overnight.
The Wal-Mart in Austintown reported they were out of rock salt as of early Wednesday morning.
Some smaller, locally owned stores reported having some stock of rock salt.
