    Where are the bulk salt suppliers in Maine. Will travel. After reading the thread on "how much for bulk salt"? it looks like i am paying double what everyone else is. I believe our last wheeler load was $114 ton. Thanks, doug

    What places in Maine distribute it though? I know about Pike and Eastern salt but they are 85 - 95 ton picked up. I can only take about 4ton at a time. Anyone local sell Magic Salt? Thanks.

    If you only can get 4 tons at a time, its going to be tough to get below that pike price.. ( I buy 30 tons at a time and its close to the price of pikes) if your looking for magic salt there is a dealer in scarb (not sure of the name) and wales (g and g landscaping) that sells magic 0.. you'd have to treat the salt yourself

    good luck
