I stopped in the other day and picked up a bucket of salt from Barry, which is always where I've bought it from in my long SW tenure of 3 years. I was surprised to see that he had raised his price significantly on the buckets and he said he expected another couple dollars price increase within the next couple months. Not knocking my old pal in Nitro, but it just isn't feasible to me to drive up there to get salt anymore ( I'm 1.5 hrs each way). I'm going to look into DFS shipped directly to my house. Has anyone ever done this? They have a 9.99 delivery fee on salt and I don't think there is a limit on how many you can order and get combined shipping at the same rate.
