Retail experts are saying that the supply chain "meltdown" will make holiday shopping tough this year, and shoppers are beginning to worry.

Big retailers like Target and Amazon are even offering holiday promos earlier than ever to try and get ahead of the lack of inventory.

Stop buying junk from china. Wwjd? He was a carpenter he would DIY. The gift thing has taken focus from joy and love and the celebration of Jesus. Even hanuka dosent require buying junk. Lets get back to basics then figure out how to regain maufacturing here.peace,joy love to all and no debt

There are going to be issues because everyone is going to want the last and greatest and it’s always been supply and demand and there is going to be less supply and more demand

I live in the Hampton Roads Virginia area. Yesterday, while I was out and about, I passed the Virginia Port Authority docks in Portsmouth, VA, I could visually see the Norfolk Docks, the MAERSK Docks and Passed the Newport News Docks. Not one ship tied up and unloading at the Norfolk, Portsmouth or Newport News Docks. Two ships unloading at the MAERSK Docks.
There was a Coal Collier at the Norfolk-Southern Coal Pier, but if a ship is there, it is loading and going outbound soon. My question is: if there is a Supply Chain issue (and I truly believe that there is one), why aren't the ships sitting off the coast of California (Long Beach) not heading for the ports on the US East Coast to unload? I do know that there are numerous Interstate Highways that can be reached easily from Hampton Roads Virginia.

I'm hoping that the supply chain issues bring back the friends and family memory making without the commercialism that the holidays should be about. Getting presents is great but finally getting to spend time with family, friends and loved ones this year should feel extra special. On a different note, I really think that Walmart has been a total Scrooge to their customers by doing away with layaway and instead introducing high interest buy-now pay later schemes which now gets their customers indebted into them rather than offering a service that rewards hard work and saving.

I think it will be an interesting holiday season for sure. I am already noticing how long things are taking to ship when I order online... and the 'traditional' shopping season hasnt even started yet
