    We have some-call 610-497-9390
    we can ship anywhere or you can pick up but its going fast! The entire country is out!
    It is different grades and may be on the finer side however it is salt but it is a mix so granular size differs depending on where we are in the pile.
    Finer salt has a higher surface coverage and works faster really. That's why Europe uses nothing but table salt like products. We use more granular salt due to our equipment but the truth is a finer salt is better.
    $115/ton FOB sorry but we had to pay allot to get it so we have to pass it on........

    been is business since 1979
    supplied everyone 4 years ago during the last storage
    we have it because we are one of the few companies that actually imports full 50,000/ton ships not one that claims too but really gets supplied by companies like us.
    It is going fast....we are getting 1000 calls a day

    Vessel rates have gone up, OT is killing us, we are paying a premium because there is no time to import more so we are buying from other sources that charge more among other factors....I'm sorry you feel it is to high however you need to understand what we go through to secure it for people.....frankly we are getting more than $115/ton. I'm sorry we can't be of service, Good luck in the search, feel bad for you all out there.....TOUGH FOR EVERYBODY!

    we are having to mix numerous grades to get something decent otherwise it would all be fines, normally it is much better. We just can't answer the phones quick enough, one of the few left with product so calls are coming from all over the nation and Canada!

    sorry guys, truckers are hitting us hard, we are buying salt at a premium now too but we can get it due to our relationships with them but they are hitting us hard too........If you all get trucks cheaper into Delaware, Virginia or north Carolina let us know.......you can buy $105/ton picked up in any of those places, send your trucks in.
    These guys are driving $100k rigs, from the east coast to you in bad weather and dead heading......they have to charge allot and I'm sure they are tacking on for the situation but we can't do anything about that.
    again sorry, it's going fast in all locations so if you can send trucks and lots of them lets talk.....got allot of salt, economical trucks and allot of them is the problem

    Cant be Chicago. There is no salt here. If they were here, they would be sold out no matter how many tons they had.
