Small businesses talks challenges that been facing them over the years

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- Small businesses have had a number of internal and external challenges over the past few years, and that trend will probably continue.

South Dakota Retailers Association Executive Director Nathan Sanderson says he hears the same things from their members.

Sanderson says people have noticed some stores displaying Christmas products already. He says there is a reason for that.

Sanderson says the supply chain issues have become more critical in many cases.

Sanderson says some businesses have rented more warehouse space for products and are also dealing with those extra costs.
