Most stores open, but sleds long gone

Bread and milk supplies are holding up, but Salisbury residents who don’t have a sled are pretty much out of luck.
Paul Bernhardt of Bernhardt Hardware said he sold hundreds of plastic sleds this weekend in preparation for today’s snowfall. As of noon, the only sleds he had left were two pricey wood-and-metal models in the store window.
Bernhardt said he hopes to have more sleds Friday.
The downtown hardware store is open today, along with most grocery stores and Walmart. But most of the mall is closed, except JCPenney, Belk, Big Lots and Dollar Tree, which all have exterior entrances and are open.
Grocery stores reported they have most staples on the shelves.
“We’re OK right now,” said Roger Freeze, Food Lion Manager at 251 Faith Road. “We’re a little low, but they delivered this morning.”
Freeze said he expects another delivery of bread and milk tomorrow.
Walmart is out of ice melt and kerosene heater buckets, although the store has heaters and kerosene, Manager Gary Sixkiller said.
The Salisbury Walmart doesn’t carry snow shovels or sleds, although Sixkiller said he’s trying to change that.
“Once they get over initial shock of, ‘Oh there’s snow,’ they want to get out and enjoy it,” he said.
