MIAMI TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – Counties and communities aren’t the only ones facing a salt shortage. Stores are running out of salt too.
2 NEWS went to Lowe’s near the Dayton Mall. The store has sold out of salt multiple times this winter.
The store’s manager said customers are buying salt by the bulk.
“Not only are they buying one bag,” explained Steve Dolen, who is the store manager. “Customers are buying three and four and five bags of salt. I think the consumer this year has planned much better than in the past because of all the ice and snow we’ve had.”
