    Where is everyone getting their bulk salt at this year? Need to start stocking up. We were using Brookfield, but not sure if they are selling to anyone else besides the city. Need to get prices ASAP!

    Needed to be paid for by Oct 3 $160.00 a ton for white. I believe Ed said that it was coming fron Chile.

    $160 is RIDICULOUS, especially for white! That's what we were paying last year when everyone was running out, not before the season started! I can get it for $150/ton delivered from Detroit!

    Guess you know where to buy it from then.

    Salt has been going for at least double the starting price of last year for everyone in the Midwest. And it's possible that if you don't have it, you won't get it.

    I had to prepay for 200 tons and just got the last load in. That's all I'm getting from them unless it's a light winter.

    The shortage didn't happen overnight and it didn't go away over the summer.

    Good luck.

    As ridiculous as you think the price is now wait to see what it is going for the middle of January. I paid more than twice what I paid last year and had to prepay and take delivery of 140+ tons to guarantee I could even get it.
