It is interesting to review our web site web analytics. We are able to see what search keyword or phrase people originally searched on Google that ultimately resulted with that visitor hitting our web site. In the past 24 hours we’ve had over a hundred visitors to our website based upon some variation of that question.
Some people have searched city specific. Some are looking for environmentally safe ice melt. Some people search for rock salt. Some people are looking for snow melt. Others are looking for the liquid ice melt.
And the interesting thing is we may not have any snow or ice in the metro atlanta area today. It could just be another day of rain.
For those searching, yes. At this moment in time we do have ice melt in stock at each our stores. Our Doraville, Duluth and Oakwood stores have a limited supply of ice melt and if the weather does indicate that we’ll get more frozen precipitation than wet… you can be sure that we’ll be working with our True Value warehouse in Jonesboro to get some more.
In 2011 (remember that year of ice?) we sold over 125,000 pounds of ice melt. Back then, we all remember how unprepared the city and region was for the ice that we got. While I am more confident that the department of transportation is more prepared now than they were then… you as a small business owner and homeowner need to be prepared in case the weather turns for the worse.
Here’s a description of the ice melt that we currently have in stock:
Fast melt, 50 lb, ice melter, contains primary potassium chloride & secondary urea, sodium chloride, & mg-104, melts effectively down to 5°ree. Fahrenheit, fast acting minerals deliver maximum ice melting power, will not damage concrete or carpets when used as directed. ($15.99)
You can call ahead to make sure we have some instock before you drive over. As always, we try to help folks on a first come first serve basis. If you are at all worried about the weather and want to insure that you have some ice melt, you don’t need to wait until it is too late.
Oh yeah, we have a limited supply of snow sleds too.
Give us a call.
