It's time for the manufacturers to pick it up and for folks to stop buying shit.

I mentioned to someone that most shelves are either half full or half empty. Our local Honda, VW, Ford and Toyota stores are displaying a lot of blacktop. Firearms are pretty much gone. Lots of grocery products are missing from shelves.

My guess is this is only going to get worse until the KungFlu is forgotten.

Try stocking a new house in the midst of all this...

Most furniture is backordered indefinitely.

Many electronics and kitchen appliances are out of stock.

Even simple things like baking sheets and measuring cups have spotty availability.

I'd just like to replenish some of the ammo I've shot up over the last couple months. Not asking for much, just a few cases.....

Dang, hate seeing this, fixing to throw out our living room stuff tomorrow. Moving north and this worn out furniture isn't worth loading on the truck. Frown

Went by Old Time Pottery the other day.
The pottery section was almost empty... strange.

They were putting out Halloween decorations... Roll Eyes



There is nothing more permanent than a temporary solution that works.

We're just in to a kitchen remodel. Not worried about furniture and haven't heard of any appliance shortages. Will be a boatload of suckage if true.

Someone ripped out breakers in one of our client's vacant residential lease listings. Apparently, there's a shortage of electrical breakers.

Someone said on the forum buy a lot when it's available. I'm not trying to be an ass.

It IS getting OLD. I've been seeing it in my business. It seems like everything takes twice as much effort to accomplish the same thing.

Well yeah, but then when it's not available one's own stock tends to get depleted.

I've enough to keep going for a while, but I'd like to be able to restock, too.

Add me to the list. I'm having a little trouble understanding the logic behind some of the shortages.

Not hard if you think about it. My area ran out of pineapple for several weeks, because Hawaii was locked down. Many appliances are in short supply because they or their components are from China. Some ammo is made in Mexico. Some factories are in areas that were locked down, increasing demand on other factories. Factories had to increase production, either having to staff up or pay overtime. The transportation system was clogged up because stores were closed, and some truckers would not go thru certain areas.

I blame a lot of it on the government as well. Many businesses still can't open, and the ones that do have to operate under such restriction that they are no where near capacity.

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

Many businesses cannot get employees to come back to work - entry level labor making 800 week on unemployment and another round of stimulus on the way. This is significantly diminishing any chance of a sound recovery.

According to my friend who's a house builder, finishing materials are getting to be in short supply, including stuff like fixtures (sinks, faucets, light sconces, towel bars, etc.), interior finishing materials like tile and flooring, as well as exterior finishing materials like fencing and gutters.

If you don't have your materials already, I'd be sure to snag them now, even if you won't need them for a little while.

Yep. This is apparently what the furniture manufacturers in particular are struggling with. They shut down for a period of time, so they got behind. And even now that most of them have reopened, a decent chunk of their workers didn't return so they're having to hire and train all new workers, which is putting them even further behind.
