Rising costs impacting small businesses

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- Rising costs are hitting businesses in two ways, increasing their costs and cutting sales due to rising prices.

South Dakota Retailers Association Executive Director Nathan Sanderson says almost all of it is tied to rising fuel prices.

Sanderson says online sellers are not insulated from the rising costs either.

Sanderson says some of the supply chain issues, which were also a problem, have been resolved.

Sanderson says most retailers continue to struggle to find the workers they need.
