Hardware stores stock up on salt and ice melt

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- In preparation for Sunday's winter weather forecast, consumers flocked to hardware stores to buy salt and ice melt. 

Brownsboro Hardware and Paint manager Doug Carroll says an emergency truck will deliver more supplies tonight to meet customers' needs Sunday. By early Saturday evening, they were down to just a few pallets.

"You know winter weather in March doesn't make people happy;" Carroll said Saturday "they are ready for spring but you know in Louisville, Kentucky this is the weather we get sometimes."

Carroll says people also stopped in to buy generators, lamp oil and flashlights.
