Air conditioners are hard to come by right across the province.
Some New Brunswickers say they can’t remember it ever being this hot, every day, for weeks.
Manager at Downey’s Home Hardware in Riverview Mitch Melanson says air conditioners are hard to come by, “We usually get our stock through the distribution centre for Home Hardware, but right now we are actually sourcing out through another vendor.”
Due to the high demand, the units could actually end up costing you more.
“Our cost changes when we have to buy outside of Home Hardware, and unfortunately when we have to pay more, the consumers will have to pay a little more as well,” Melanson says.
He says sales of air conditioners and fans have tripled this summer.
Melanson says they do have a few kiddie pools left, if you’re searching for a temporary fix..
