The first snowfall of the season in southeastern Wisconsin is on its way.

As residents prepare for another winter, hardware store managers are busy stocking their shelves with needed supplies.

“Salt, I have so many pallets, I have about 60 outside right now,” said Steven Pratt, Meinecke ACE Hardware store manager. “Excavators, we haven’t seen any loss of demand for this.”

He said some supplies seem readily available at the moment, but larger items like snow blowers will be hard to come by.

“All we have left is all we’ll have for the rest of the season,” Pratt told WISN 12 of the snowblowers. “Every time they are gone, they are gone.”

Pratt said he could only place a single order for 70 snowblowers for four of his stores.

Under normal supply chain circumstances, he said he places multiple orders throughout the season.

This year, he could only do one.

“ACE is currently out of everything, Toro, we can’t get anything from Toro himself,” he explained. “So it’s just a lot of supply chain (problems) that we can’t get them.”

He said he expects salt, shovels and other items to remain in stock for now.

All of these items are in the front and center of his store.

The Milwaukee Department of Public Works did not comment on supply chain shortages, but said it was ready to expand salting operations if necessary.
