Stores struggle to keep with demand for electric heaters

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Stores across Middle Tennessee are struggling to keep up with the high demand for electric heaters.

Extended periods of sub-freezing temperatures have caused heating outages and propane shortages.

Cumberland Hardware in east Nashville has a few space heaters left.

Manager John Varallo said suppliers have run out of heaters. He added what's on the shelf is likely all there is until next winter.

Calls to some big box stores like Lowe's and Home Depot found that many hardware stores can't keep heaters on the shelves because of a high demand and low supply.
