With Back-to-School around the corner and students returning to school after a year of staying home with remote school, experts say there is a Back-to-School shortage of supplies looming that could include backpacks, shoes and school supplies.
As the pandemic continues to cause supply chain disruption issues resulting in lower inventory levels and shipment delays, don't wait too long to start planning your back-to-school shopping in order to avoid shortages and potential price increases.
Neil Saunders, retail analyst and managing director at GlobalData Retail explains: "What we will likely see is more limited choice and lower stock levels towards the end of the back-to-school period. Some consumers will inevitably miss out on the things they want to purchase."
Surprisingly, school products can contain many harmful toxins like PVC, lead and Phthalates, so keep your children safe with products that don't use toxic materials. At Milkdot, we care about you and the environment and have made it our priority to produce products that are only made with safe, non-toxic materials which have been tested lead-free, PVC-free, BPA-free and Phthalate-free.
There's still time to start your back-to-school shopping sooner than later so you can find the sizes and styles you want and save money before supplies run out and prices increase. At Milkdot, we will not raise our prices, though we are running low in stock and selling out of our insulated lunch bags and kid backpacks. Be sure to get yours before your favorite styles and colors are gone!
