    Salt is hard to find this year i picked up a load last week and was told that i was the last private contractor to get a load out of the lacrosse port they said they are shutting down sales and only selling to municipalities. Good luck with your salt search

    Nobody around my area uses bulk salt except one contractor and they are not dependable to buy from if they would sell at all. Everyone else including me uses bagged salt or bulk sand from the pit. Salt isn't all that popular around here :dizzy:. I guess they are gonna have to be sued to realize how good it really is.

    Do you sell or just have some of your own stock pile you are wanting to get rid of?
