Start Christmas Shopping Now If You Want To Get Your Gifts In Time

Statewide Iowa — Supply chain experts are encouraging you to start your holiday shopping now as the hurdles brought on by the pandemic will be similar to last year, with some new challenges.

The chair of Iowa State University’s department of supply chain management, Scott Grawe, says there will likely be some products not available in stores or online because of slow shipping times combined with a labor shortage.

He says you should consider all the shopping alternatives.

You just need to be more flexible in your shopping.

Grawe predicts the old standby of gift certificates may be a popular, and more reliable, present choice this year.
