Pellet Stoves Hard To Find

Laramie, Wy –
With Heating costs increasing at an alarming rate consumers are looking for alternative heating sources. But a run on one source has made them unavailable. While woodstove sales across the country have been brisk pellet stoves are currently unavailable. Wyoming Woodstove owner Les Darnall says he tried to locate more pellet stoves with no luck. "Every company I called today for pellet stoves is out. They are already out of stock. I will have no pellet stoves to sell in my store until the first of January." But Darnall says he was able to order a large shipment of woodstoves as he prepares for what should be a rush of customers interested in having one installed in their home. While wood costs are also rising Darnall says people who cut their own wood should be in good shape.
