Stores running low on winter supplies

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Several hardware stores are running low or completely out of supplies like salt, sand, and snow shovels. Although the snowfall has still been good for business.

D&B Supply in Boise has seen customers have been coming in droves to buy supplies. Managers there said they actually bought more supplies earlier in the season, and the gamble is paying off big now.

Managers say they've seen a big spike in sales over the last couple of days. While some people bought supplies weeks ago several more have only just come in.

Many people tend to hold off on buying supplies until they know the storm is going to be bad enough to need salt or sand.

With more snow expected through the weekend many stores could start running out of winter supplies all together.
