Ace Hardware employees give tips for snowfall preparation

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Tuesday’s weather may have had you rushing to stores like Ace Hardware for supplies.

Employees say they’re busy.

People are coming in for salt, sand, and shovels.

And they expect even more foot traffic as we get closer to the holidays.

If you haven’t had a chance to prepare for the snow, employees suggest using sand on newer sidewalks.

Kitty litter will be useful for traction but won’t melt ice and make sure your snow blower is in working order before snow sticks to the ground.
