Like most retailers, IKEA is feeling the impacts of the supply chain crunch and struggling to fill its shelves, with company executives saying the brand's North American stores have been hardest hit by product shortages.
The company is also reducing the number of versions of some products as it struggles with raw materials shortages to ensure its most popular items are available.

The supply chain crisis is impacting all major retailers worldwide and,..., the biggest challenge for IKEA currently is getting goods out of China, where roughly a quarter of brand's products are made.
Ben Weaver, 27, from Kalamazoo, Michigan, told the Wall Street Journal: 'I went to Lowe's, Home Depot, TJ Maxx, HomeGoods and I'm already seeing the Christmas stuff replace the Halloween stuff which is ridiculous.

Cry me a river about how hard it is to get cheap crap from China right now.
It’s trapped on Containers at sea
Other than people losing their jobs, would anyone’s life be adversely impacted if IKEA bit the dust?
LISTEN: Someone just paged EMPTY SHELVES JOE at the airport
They are one of the wokiest companies, no doubt the same goes for their employees so boofreakinhoo!
Made In America ain’t trapped on a container ship right now.

Screw IKEA. They are the liberalist of the libs! The wokeist of the woke! Nothing but a bunch of commies. Choke on it IKEA
Good. This vile liberal/progressive in you face Netherland company can suffocate and die with no tears from me.
At least there’s fake cats still on the shelves!
The photo of empty shelves is from the Halloween decorations section. Is that really a tragedy?
I’m wintering in Mexico and there are no shortages here. The shelves are full. Plenty of everything. I’m not in a major metropolitan area.
Thanks for the report. If shelves are well stocked wherever you are in Mexico, then the reason for our debacle is the throttling of 50% of trucks that can operate in California. See article by Sundance about the Calif Resources Air Board’s 2020 regulatory squeeze.
Another example of Joe The Surrender Monkey's "Build Back Better" policies.
Voilà — instant Ikea.
our local ikea has an enormous blm flag with a black power fist on it.
needless to say, i won’t start shopping there now.
