The search for sidewalk salt is on

MOLINE, Illinois  --  For the last few days, people around the Quad Cities have been buying up as much ice-melt or salt as they can. With salt being in such high demand, stores are running out.

"All of the customers are telling us no one has any," Butch Trevor, owner of Trevor's True Value said. "It all depends on when the truck comes in."

"Like everybody else, we are out," Mark Hayman, owner of Hayman's Westside Ace Hardware, said. "It's hard to get from suppliers right now, because nothing is bagged up. They've still got it in bulk for cities and stuff like that, but getting bags of it is really difficult right now."
