The BMR didn't have any, but I did manage to find them at the Nepean Rona.  Apparently, they ran out earlier and brought in a special order.  There's only 1 pallet left, so I doubt if there will be any left by the end of next weekend.

I guess they'll probably be impossible to get now, huh?  Sad I've got about five bags' worth left, counting what's in the litter storage thing.

If there's a place that WILL do special orders, maybe we should all get together and order another pallet?

Not impossible, but definitely more challenging.  I would try calling the Ronas to see if they received any more shipments.  Failing that, you may have to look at out of town suppliers, or pay a little more from horse supply stores.

Depending on the number of fuzzies, you might be OK until next fall...

Rona in Gatineau on St Rene has about 160 bags of the wood stove pellets on hand as of yesterday.

I know it's not that likely, but if anyone else goes down to Ogdensburg (upstate NY, you just take the 416 down to where it meets the 401 but take the bridge across the St. Lawrence instead of getting on the 401) to pick up American-shipping-only packages at the UPS store/shop at American Wal-Mart/buy cheaper gas/whatever, the Lowe's home improvement store right across the bridge has wood stove pellets as of last Friday, and the employees seemed confused by my suggestion that they might not have them in the summer.

Apparently today is OPPOSITE DAY at Nepean Rona! By "we have wood stove pellets" they in fact mean "we do not have wood stove pellets". Grrrr. Drove all the way down there and had to come back with nothing to show for it. (Well, except for a bag of ExquisiCat pine from Petsmart that cost $11 for 25 lb...)

The east end Rona doesn't have them in yet, either. And Richie Feed & Seed is apparently not carrying them this year because they can't match the big box stores' prices.

C'mon, guys, it's getting colder at night! People need to heat their houses, and my ferrets need to poop!

The Innes Home Depot has them for $4.99 a bag, straight back from the entrance, right behind a display of furniture.

The Rona and Home Depots stores near Innes and the 417 are both out. Rona was supposed to have more this week, but now say it could be up to a month before they receive a shipment.  Home Depot is hoping to have more next week.. maybe.  As soon as I find some, I'm going to stock up big time.

Bad news... none of the Rona or Home Depot stores in Ottawa have pellets right now.  It seems they were using the same supplier which burned down earlier this year.  Some stores *may* have some stock from alternate suppliers within the next 7 to 30 days.

Pellets are starting to show up in limited quantities.   Rona on Innes had a pallet left this morning.  The downside is they were $5.99 per bag and there is a limit of 6 bags per order.

Does anyone know where we can get wood pellets now?? Last I checked, the Nepean Rona didn't have any, and we are completely out.

The main producer in Quebc had a fire earlier this year.  This, combined with a huge increase in wood pellet stove sales, has led to a major shortage in Eastern Canada.  Some suppliers are going as far as BC for their orders.  As far as I know, the only alternatives at this time (other than switching to Yesterdays News or Feline Pine litter) are:

Call Ottawa Wood Pellet Stoves 613-822-0574 and add your name to their waiting list.  They're at 8310 Mitch Owens Rd., Edwards, Ontario K0A 1V0 (see This Post for more details).

Try the TSC Stores to see if they have any Wood Pellet Horse Bedding (it's also in short supply as people are buying it to use in the stoves).

FYI, Rona on Innes has received another shipment of pellets.  These are $6.99+tax per bag and the limit is 20 bags per person.   Stock up while you can!
