Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - As of today, the 75–watt bulb will no longer be made, but it will remain on the shelves for a while, at least.

Stores that supply light bulbs, like Menards in Duluth, will be allowed to sell the 75–watt bulb until their supplies are gone. It's the same fate that befell the 100–wat light bulb one year earlier.

If you'd like to get your hands on a few more 75–watt bulbs, officials say not to worry, as many retailers bulked up their inventory in the weeks leading up to the ban.
