Lee Valley Tools Warns Canadians To Holiday Shop Early

Canadian retailer Lee Valley Tools is warning Canadians to holiday shop early this year due to supply-chain concerns. Although things are heading back to normal, the retailer warns that suppliers can’t keep up with the demand and shipping costs are a growing issue, the price of shipping containers from Asia to the west coast of North America more than quadrupling this year. As well, IKEA says the company is having issues keeping shelves stalked due to a shortage of goods shipping from China to North America.
