With reports of soggy homes due to snow melt and recent rains, sump pumps are a hot item. And stocks at some stores are low, so call around before heading out.
One store is ready for the business: MN Home Outlet, which has locations in Burnsville (2300 Hwy. 13), Woodbury (10470 Hudson Rd.) and Coon Rapids (20 Coon Rapids Blvd.).
The home improvement liquidator has more than a thousand divided among the three stores, although the Burnsville location has the largest selection.
Prices are about 50 percent off regular retail prices.
