The pandemic is subsiding but it has left a multitude of challenges in it's wake. There are severe product shortages across many industries. Supply chain issues abound as manufacturers struggle with obtaining raw materials, staffing a sufficient work force for production demands, and readjusting to changing post-pandemic customer buying patterns.
Some of the results are increased back orders, much longer lead times and constant price fluctuations. We are seeing this in several product lines that we carry: office products, paper products, office furniture, computer supplies - even promotional items and apparel.
