Dear Editor,

I am contacting you about the shortage on wood pellets for wood pellet stoves in the Centre and Clearfield county areas.

We are in the beginning of March with cold weather still on the way. Stores like Rural King, Tractor Supply Inc., True Value, Ace, Home Depot and Weis do not have any pellets in stock. Most of them are saying “out of season” and instead have live plants for everyone’s gardens since its the season to plant — while there is still three inches of snow on the ground and 9 degrees at night.

We are not the only family out there that needs pellets to keep warm. This is something these stores listed above are getting numerous calls about every day and are telling customers to either keep calling or the pellets are out of season.
