Decorating is one of the most entertaining activities during the holiday season, and something many of us do as a family. This year, holiday season is like nothing we’ve seen in the past, due to the upheaval caused by the pandemic. Vendors supplying holiday decorations are having their own issues primarily caused by the supply chain disruptions. This holiday season, many stores cannot meet the demand for holiday lighting, and forecasting the need is also difficult as many households are spending unusually high amounts on lights this year.
- The owner of Subzero Winter Services says the demand for lights has been higher than normal.
- People may be decorating more at home because of restrictions on social gatherings.
- There have been issues with the supply chain, according to the owner of Carlson Ace Hardware.
“But with more people going above and beyond with their holiday decorations and supply chain issues due to COVID-19, getting the exact number and type of lights needed hasn’t been as easy as in the past.”
