PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- Your local retailer is at the bottom end of a very long supply chain, which may not be working all that well.
Nathan Sanderson, Executive Director of the South Dakota Retailers Association, says many businesses are still waiting.
Sanderson says many retailers may not take orders this year.
Sanderson says the supply chain and labor shortages will increase costs for retailers and customers.
The holiday season accounts for a quarter to one third of total yearly sales for many retailers.
