Supply chain issues and Easter weekend | KAMR


AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — As Easter approaches and people prepare for those Easter dinners, some things may be harder to come by than others.

The United Family’s regional vice president of operations, Paul Evans, said he saw supply chain issues.

“Whether it’s labor on the manufacturer’s part or product packaging or other things of that nature,” Evans said.

But he said that at Easter the stores would be fine. Evans added that there may be items customers are looking for in a particular brand, but he said they’ll have something else to offer if that brand isn’t available.

He said that right now some items are hard to find due to ingredients and packaging.

“It’s true that our pasta is really hard to get because it has starch in it, so it’s hard to get the pasta. Other areas deal with specialty milks and things of that nature that pose packaging supply issues, so those are some of the items we are short of,” Evans said.

Evans just asks customers to be patient when getting you the items you need.

“We try to take care of you, whether it’s as a guest or just taking care of you with products you need for your family Easter meal,” Evans said.

Evans said on Friday and Saturday United would see heavy traffic with people trying to get items for Easter.

Just a warning for last minute shoppers United Supermarkets will be closed on Easter Sunday.

And according to NBC News, Passover food prices are rising due to inflation and supply chain issues, with wholesale prices for poultry, meat and salmon rising 20% ​​to 25% as the country’s Jews prepare for the holidays to begin on Friday.
