The continuous supply chain challenges are causing holiday shopping problems for many consumers this year. Shoppers are running into a shocking trend – 50% of people are finding many of their wanted items not in stock both online and in stores as holiday shipping windows get smaller. Out-of-stock products are even anticipated to rise 360% from two years ago with the electronics industry getting most of the blow. Many tech gifts are expected to sell out fast as tech becomes harder to source. Chip shortages and increasing costs of shipping containers, air freight, and trucking are making electronics more expensive and less available.
