Hardware stores sending supplies to DC

WINTERVILLE, NC (WNCT)- Some hardware stores in our area are sending materials up north.

The Lowes in Winterville is out of salt because they sent a lot of it to Washington, DC. Employees say the store wanted to make sure locations that need it most had a good amount.”All the salt that we had in the store is out.” Employee Brock Jester said, “We’re trying to send that to residents up north in Virginia and DC where they’re really going to get hit hard, we’re trying to everything to them as they possibly can.”

Jester says a lot of people in our area have already stocked up. He advises people to have pipe insulators and things to keep warm in case the power goes out. Jester also says Lowes is offering alternatives to salt if that’s what you’re looking for.
