Hardware store out of storm items in Rapid City



No shovels, no chain saws, no batteries, and no generators. That's the situation at the west side Ace Hardware.


According to Dana Koupal, manager, his wall used to be stocked with chain saws. By 10:00 a.m. Monday, they were all gone.
Koupal says employees re-stocked a few times but are out again, selling about 100 chain saws.

Shovels and batteries also flew off the shelves, and all four generators the store had were sold by Friday night.

Koupal says the store had not yet stocked up on winter supplies. "Stuff that we sold was stuff that we had left over from last year. So we're getting a whole big truck tomorrow full of snow shovels to replenish the inventory that we sold over the week," said Koupal.

Koupal says most people have learned their lesson, and are stocking up with supplies to prepare for future storms. "
