Salt, water softener salt flying of the shelves

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) -- As the snow and ice keep building up, salt is dissolving off the shelves.

Empty shelves remain where the salt would be at Theisen's in Cedar Rapids. The assistant manager says just about everything winter weather related has been going fast. They won't have any on hand for the next few days. The store advises people to get creative.

"They can use water softner salt in the mean time will work just fine. The crystalized version will work wonders as well until the ice melt comes in, finally," Bryce Buckallew, Theisen's Assistant Manager, said.

The store is also out of water softener salt, though. It expects to get a shipment by the end of the week.
