From the Wall Street Journal:

Kroger Co., the largest grocery chain in the U.S., said it increased its safety stock of items in more than 70 categories, sourced additional warehouse space to house the extra products and spread out the ports it uses for imports. Walmart Inc. also said it has diverted ships to less congested ports, while hiring 20,000 supply chain workers and further automating some warehouse operations.

But smaller grocery retailers with less flexibility have struggled to keep shelves full and to plan for what items may show up on any given day.

Grocery store managers said they are deploying one of the oldest techniques usually used by stores running low on produce to other sections of the store: “Facing up,” or bringing the few items on a shelf to the front so customers can’t see the empty space behind. They are also increasing the number of “facings,” or rows, a certain item is given on a shelf to cover gaps...


“For certain things, I’m afraid people will come in, see it’s not here and wind up not coming back for it,” he said. “Keeping the box out shows I’m making an effort to get them in, and not giving up on them.”


Lots of meaningful stuff here but, when you come down to it, Joe Biden is President. Joe Biden is a Dem. And, again, somehow...it always happens...Big Business benefits.

Always happens.
