MORE AFFLUENT AREAS OF THE COUNTRY STILL WILL HAVE MORE GOODS AVAILABLE, BUT,THE TREND IS AS DR.JACK HAD DETAILED-
I shop Wally World as a Convenience Store for what is needed NOW (I do cruise the "Clearance Isle" for something I can get at a Deep Discount ie Exterior gallon paint for $6 bucks a gallon).
What I have notice this year is that prior to VT Day, SP Day in the past, they clear out sections of the store and stock 30 gal totes for the "Holiday" Display. Currently, and in past months, there is still lots of shelf space filled with "30 Gal Totes". Canned goods and Frozen; the normal "Facings", 3 or 4 Items has been extended to what ever they have in stock to facings of 6 to 8. End Caps; they are still Clearing out Christmas Toys at deep discounts. Also, 4 to 6 boxes of larger Items are prevalent on the End Caps. Facings through out the stores are widened. This tells me they are not able to stock what they normally stock. This translates to "Shortage".
After not being able to find the sleeping bags I wanted for the Memorial Day week end locally, I went on line and ordered them from Wally World. What I ordered were better than what I am replacing @ a 30% discount, and rival the price of the puny bags they stock in the stores. Mailed to my home at no cost...
