Local hardware stores are experiencing low inventory in supplies related to storm cleanup.
Although much of the flooding happened south of Holmen, those at ACE Hardware say people continue to buy cleaning supplies. They say sump pumps, carpet cleaning products, and fans have been in high demand.
Store manager, Shawn Martin, says the store can quickly re-stock any items that may be sold out.
"If we run out, ACE’s warehouse is on French Island right in La Crosse," said Martin. "They are servicing us, the West Salem ACE and the ACE La Crosse. Usually within two or two and a half hours, we can get product back in our stores."
Martin says he expects those items to continue selling with more rain in the forecast for the area. The storm cleanup falls during what Martin says is one of the busiest times of the year for ACE Hardware in Holmen.
