Popular Store Items Flying Off the Shelves

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- Some people in Wicomico County didn't waste any time preparing for tonight's heavy snowfall. 


The Home Depot in Salisbury saw its fair share of customers today. John Dayton unloaded ten bags of wood pellet fuel for his family's pellet stove. Dayton said he is not worried about the winter storm, but another close family member is. 

"I think my dad is really worried," Dayton said. "He hates the cold; he absolutely despises it."

John Darby was another customer who stopped by Home Depot in Salisbury today. Ice melt was at the top of his list. Darby wasn't sure of he would find it at first, but he did.

"I bought two things[ jugs] of ice melt," Darby said. "I'm a very happy man now," he said, laughing. 

The snow, shovel and ice section was fully stocked. Staffers say customers have taken full advantage of it. 

"A lot of ice melt has been going out the door," said Dan Silverman, the store manager at Home Depot. " A lot of sand, you know for weights in the back of the car, which is always a good idea if you're going to be on the road.

"Shovels are going really well, and scrapers and pellet fuel are too, " he said. 

Silverman said employees expect the crowds to grow. He said employee will restock the shelves on an ongoing basis.
