Many chemicals we sell as much citric acid is on ships, double ordered, and US only makes 65% and rest from China, Price gone from $0.83 per pound to over $4.00 if you can commit or can afford to. Have to see price in 2nd qt 2022.
No, but I live in Forgottonia where we have no supply chain.

We’ve had a few issues but they’ve been on bigger ticket items - a gas fire pit we ordered ended up getting cancelled and the bed we ordered for our spare bedroom in June still isn’t here - originally August, now saying December.
Oh, and there was no salami at the grocery store for *weeks*
I decided to remodel my bathroom went to buy new vanity basin shower and tub. Did this in August. I asked when I would get stuff. Salesman said mid to end of February. I said are you kidding he said do I look like I am laughing? I checked this week some stuff in but tub is still February or March.

==I decided to remodel my bathroom ==
Some friends of ours are in the middle of a gut rehab that started in May. It was originally a 6-8 month job but with all the delays they’ve had so far, they don’t expect to be back into their house until next summer
Have been waiting on a new kitchen stove approximately 6 months. Still have a working one so no real biggie, and could find one in other places, but prefer to buy from local hardware/appliance store. They update me every week on what they get in, it’s hit and miss. Some things come within just a few weeks of ordering; some (like my stove) are just lost in space. Other than that, canning jar lids and rings were like gold bars earlier this year, and most currently apple juice has been out of stock my last few grocery shopping trips.
Cyclist and bike mechanic and parts are really hard to get. You cannot get somethings without a lot of work and expense. I repair guitars too but generally can get whatever I need for those but they tend to no rely on parts. The other thing is you just cannot go by somethings it is all warehouse order. Could be covid and changes in business.
Was trying to get some clips to hang Christmas lights on the house, since part of the roofline is gabled and doesn’t have gutter to clip on to. Went to true value to get more of the same kind I bought 2 years ago. Manager apologized and said he tried to get that kind again but couldn’t. Had a very different kind in stock, they would make lights hang differently. Not sure if mixing them would work. Not having luck finding the original kind. Oh well. Back to the drawing board it seems.
==== ==There was absolutely no Hamm’s beer anywhere for months.=====
Hamm’s was probably my first beer. Way too young but my uncle was a beer truck driver for them. While at family parties at their house my cousin and I while getting beers for the adults we would sneak one for ourselves.
Besides that lumber is somewhat on back order.
Try ALDI. I just picked up a bag. And they are normally in-stock.

No problems. Local breweries still making new beers.

A restaurant we frequent in Springfield has not been able to get onion rings from their supplier for months. Finally printed new menus without that appetizer listed. Bummer. They were our favorite appetizer.
But the grocery stores have them…

Nope. No problems at all.
It’s like Biden’s plan to get everyone at the ports to knock it off and get back to work is… working. ;)
No. fortunately the boiler we need in Iowa (cermak’s west compound) was in stock at the manufacturer, it’s on its way and will be installed Friday. We have been very fortunate that winter has come late this year. We got here for Thanksgiving only to realize that the heat was out. Since the boiler stems from the 70s and we had it fixed last year, we opted for a new one.
