Supplies are late and shelves are empty in some areas and for some products more than others. Automobiles and other products needing chips are not always easy to obtain. Items such as cream cheese, bread,and paper products have been missing on shelves in some stores. Here is a tip: If you can't obtain a product from a major supplier or store, try going to a smaller suppler. Sometimes they have stock where the larger company can't supply what you need. Send us your comments about your supply experience. Read about the chip shortage and when it is expected to end in the March issue of "Professional Purchasing".
