Across the United States, stores are starting to run low again.
"The product shortages are as bad as they were in the beginning of COVID," said Burt Flickinger, managing director at Strategic Resource Group.
High demand, labor shortages and shipping delays are leaving shelves sparse and now one major chain is reporting the biggest case of déjà vu.
Costco Wholesale is warning shoppers of possible delays in toilet paper supply.
The retailer is limiting online orders of the item to one per customer and issuing a warning that there may be a delay in receiving it.
"Costco's got the best buying organization in the world, if they're alerting shoppers, it's a crisis across the country," Flickinger said.
This comes after the chain already alerted customers on its website of temporary item limits at certain warehouses.
Though, while some Costcos elsewhere in the U.S. are struggling to keep up their toilet paper supply, that problem hasn't yet reached the Tri-State. For now you'll have no trouble finding the household good on your next grocery run.
44News walked inside the Evansville Costco and saw that shelves are well-stocked with no shortage in sight, and unlike some locations there not even product limits in place.
But even though we're not seeing a hit to the supply chain locally, experts still stress it's best to be prepared.
"The SOS to shoppers is to buy paper products today," Flickinger said. "Only 60% of the paper being ordered this week by the U.S. retailers is being shipped."
