    We have about 18 pallets left right now and could spare 4 if anyone is desperate. 7/bag. We were fortunate to get a full truckload about a month ago and recent lull in weather makes me think we'll end up with some holdover. Forklift on site to load. Let me know.

    $7 seems a bit high for 50#s rock salt...home depot here has ice melt for under 9

    The salt companies are charging more now because it is costing them more to produce it. That price is actually pretty cheap compared to some of the prices I have seen people charging during this shortage.

    It is high, no argument there. It's what I have into it. Just trying to help a local guy out. Our alternative was ice melt at our local distributor for 9.60/bag. That was a month ago. They're now out. So $7/bag was better than 9.60.
