    Where To Buy Salt Rockford, IL Area

    Obviously I am new to the business and I picked up a salt account today and used up all the salt I had on hand. Where do I buy salt in the Rockford area? I am using a Western 1000 spreader on an F150 so bagged would be best. I am also looking for a vibrator because this account has a gravel lot and wants sand too.

    We get ours out of chanahan,il. If I remember 60/ton delivered. But we are nearby. They had lots of it. We took 3 semi's in the last week, last load on Monday. So I wouldnt say "Northern IL is out of salt.
