JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

Area stores seeing lots of sales in ice melt and shovels preparing for to tonight's winter weather.

Businesses in the Heartland said on Sunday they've seen a big increase in the sales of ice melt and snow shovels.

Heartland News was inside Buchheit's in Jackson, Missouri on Sunday, and saw a steady stream of people buying supplies. Buchheit's says that they have seen far more winter weather supplies bought Sunday, than in previous days.

Some customers said that this system is a bit early in the season, and they didn't think they would have to purchase ice melt or shovels already.

One person we spoke with says she loves the winter weather, but it's always good to be prepared to avoid being stuck in the snowy or icy conditions.
