Local stores say they still have supplies for winter storms
SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - Winter weather is here, and supply chain issues could mean a shortage of some supplies.
Employees at Bomgaars and Wilmes Hardware both say they have plenty of snowblowers. And actually, the Bomgaars on Hamilton Drive told me they hadn’t sold one as of noon.
But more shoppers are expected, and stores might not be able to order more of what they already have.
Mike Wilmes of Wilmes Hardware Store in South Sioux City, Nebraska, says they have not been struggling with every item.
“The shovels and ice melt, we have not had issues with. Of course, we ordered that early and we ordered the snow blowers early too, but we were unable to get those,” said Wilmes
Bottom line? Stores probably have the winter supplies you need right now. But it might be smart to get whatever you need in the next day or two.
