    waiting on response from supplier, have not received truck yet coming in a couple days.
    had to order 24 pallets to make the shipping worth it. all my suppliers here in IL and crying broke and saying they cant get salt so i found a new supplier outta state.

    as far as the large pieces did the salt get wet and clumped? or was it just not milled enough?

    I talked to my normal supplier and he stated that the manufacture is rushing to produce large amounts of salt so the quality has gone down.

    9.47 is what it ended up being per bag delivered to my door,
    ( or if it were 50lb bags around 5.80 per bag delivered to my door)
    so i can't complain much.

    which menards did you see it at 4.67?
    it was 5.90 last time i looked ( last week ) at the one near me
    home depot 5.47
    but they can only give you so many pallets ( 2-3 ) usually, they limit you.
    also gotta include taxes and everyting

    i bought it at that price at menards, 6 pallets - that price should be across the board at all menards, i know the 5 or so around here had it at that price, and menards never limits the sales- limited only to stock on hand.
    that is the pre-tax price.
    and F&F does charge like 7 bucks deposit for a pallet, and they do limit salt sometimes.

    thanks
