    Just went to home depot they were totally out proceeded onto Lowes they were completely out nearest Lowes with pellets was 52 miles away. Stopped off at Sears they had pellets Lignetics but wanted $6.59 per bag I said to the lady that they were a little heavy on the price her response was HD and Lowes are out so we jacked up the price.I bought 4 bags but I am not a happy camper when its $26 for 4 bags.Lesson learned next year I will get 4 tons not my usual 3.

    Yep, Where is around here?

    Plenty around me(here), But expect the box stores to start pulling back shortly. Pellet house's seem to have high stacks.

    Lower Bucks sounds like Philly area . A rookie mistake thinking big box in our area will have pellets past valentines day Been there done that . Find a local dealer or stock up sooner , Not bust in on the OP just some advice;)

    Hi Everyone,
    It's been a while- hope things are good for all of you. I'm trying to save $$ and I read that wood stove pellets make great litter, So I got North American ,Stove Pellets, but want to check it out here first. I read that some hardwoods can be poisonous to rabbits. The pellets I got say "Hardwood/Softwood" but there's no list for what kind of hardwood.
    Has anyone used North American Pellets with success? I really appreciate any replies [​IMG]
    Thanks!
    Dee

    I got the last ton at local HD a week ago. Can order online and deliver to store but won't know what they will try and dump on you.

    We keep telling folks to not rely on pellets being easy to find given the stores desire to push the seasons, some of them had their summer, Valentines, St Patricks Day, and Easter stuff being setup just before Christmas. You should be looking for back to school sales about now.

    I went looking for an other string of 100 warm white led lights a week and a half before Christmas. there wasn't any to be had at the 10 places that sell such items within 2 miles of me.

    No it is just a small place but the summer tourist influx is large and steady (somewhat) which leads to lots of stores in North Windham.
