Snow supplies scarce around Wichita

WICHITA, Kansas – If you struck out lately trying to find a snow shovel or de-icer, you’re not alone.

Supplies are scarce right now at area stores.

“The majority of the people walking through the door are asking where the shovels are,” said Pat Furber, Indian Hills Hardware.

KSN called several stores across Wichita from big box stores to small businesses and heard the same answer with no plans to get any more supplies.

“It was forecasted back in the springtime actually that this would be a wet winter, a lot of snow possible, ice that type of thing. You never know what to believe until it actually gets here though. As a retailer, it’s very hard to project that type of thing,” added Furber. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
