    Earlier in the season I was paying $183 for a pallet (50 bags, #50 each) of American Rock Salt, just went up to $249 a pallet. (I'm only about 45 min. from one of their mines and have a great supplier)

    Depends what your getting, calcium blends could be around $530/pallet. I got a pallet of straight rock salt last week for $403/pallet but i think its high due to the shortage.

    Im right across the bridge in PA. My place was $240/skid in December, 2 weeks ago it was up to $299. Buying multiple skids can sometimes get you a discount.

    Try Michigan Salt. If you need a few pallets I can help you out breadfan but it's not cheap. I'm 1 hr south of you

    Thanks everyone. Mr. Jon ill check with fox before next season my grandfather and I built 11 houses and bought all our material from them and i know the guys pretty well. As for the prices im just trying to get a ballpark because right now my 3 commercial accounts dont want salt they just do the walks themselves and dont want the parking lots done, however with all the ice we have had this year im going to try and see if they will pay for salting next season.
