The past few years have been a roller coaster ride for purchasing basic products at the store. In February 2020, there was a toilet paper shortage, followed by a shortage of shelf-stable foods and formula. Though most items returned to shelves, inflation caused prices to spike.

Unfortunately, it seems like 2023 may bring another round of product shortages caused by a variety of factors.

Additionally, reductions in production due to low sales during the pandemic have contributed to the current shortages.
