Businesses stock up on shovels, ice melt

Wednesday, February 14, 2007

Still need ice melt and shovels?

There's still some available if you can make it to a store.

At Ace Hardware on Greencastle's east side, Pat McCune said his store was cleaned out of shovels by Tuesday, but he was expecting more to arrive Wednesday.

"We sold about 60 shovels on Monday," he said, "and went through several skids of ice melt."

At Headley Hardware on Indianapolis Road, shovels sales have also been brisk, and there was a steady supply of ice melt for sale.

As for the city's trash removal, contractor Refuse Handling has suspended trash collection due to the snow emergency declaration.
