BRIDGETON, MO (KTVI)– Many recent falls may be because people can’t find ice melt to spread on their driveways and sidewalks.

Many hardware store shelves were empty this weekend.  That’s the case at Branneke Hardware in Bridgeton but at least they’re expecting more soon.

When we checked other hardware stores around the area including a few Home Depot and Lowes stores, we were told they have been completely sold out of ice melt for a while and couldn’t get more from their suppliers.
