Cold Weather Has Heating Supplies Flying Off Shelves

Heating supplies are flying off the shelves at local stores.

From wood pellets to electric heaters and heat tape to window plastic.

Family Farm and Home in Cadillac says people are rushing in to get all they can to stay warm.

Many stores are selling out of heating supplies and trying to keep up with demand.

“Many people are scared about what this year has been, it’s been lasting a lot longer and a lot colder, most places are running out of wood pellets so people are trying to buy them in bulk fast so they don’t run out. It’s just hard to get by,” said Family Farm and Home manager Jefferson Smith. 

They advise people to close off rooms that aren’t being used in order to focus heat in areas where people are.
