So now that Halloween is behind us, we turn our attention to the rest of the holiday season, and in particular Christmas. You can’t turn on the news without hearing about supply chain issues and the possibility that the items we are looking for this holiday season may not be available. So, are Jersey Shore residents planning to start shopping early to avoid potential problems?
We did a little informal poll and just asked if you were planning on shopping early due to supply chain issues and it turns out like so many other topics on the Jersey Shore you are roughly split in half. About 55% of you say that you have absolutely no intention of shopping early …
Here’s what some of you said …
JA said: “No !! No gifts this year, spending time with the family, cooking, cooking and visiting is a gift in itself and enough”.
Kathy proposed “Yes !! I try to support my local stores. I ordered a few freebies that weren’t going to be available until January. I bet it’s off California ”.
However, almost half of you plan ahead and shop early. Maybe the circumstances for some buyers are different. For example, if kids are on your list, you really want to find what they want before they disappear from the shelves.
We love the idea of keeping your purchases local and we really love the idea of local business gift certificates. The more we all focus on the local, the better it will be for all of us. Hope it works that way for all the local businesses we love!
