Rock salt supply low, retailers try to keep up

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.
