There are some items and brands that are still struggling with distribution challenges and the state of the industry in general. Whether they are caused by snowstorms, tornadoes, transportation and trucking issues, staff shortages, ingredient shortages, packaging issues or a combination of multiple factors nearly everyone is facing some sort of challenge right now. We are constantly working with our vendors and distributors to get as many items as possible available to you every day! Here are a few we are still working on:

  • Almond Oil (manufacturer out of stock)
  • Condensed Milk (manufacturer out of stock)
  • Corn Syrup (manufacturer out of stock)
  • Crunchy Cat Food (manufacturer out of stock)
  • Honey Roasted Almonds (manufacturer out of stock)
  • Local Lip Balm (out of business)
  • Naturally Nutty Nut Butters (raw ingredient shortage)

    That’s a good question! We’ve only just gotten wine back in stock so I’m not completely familiar with our selection yet, but I will forward this along to our department buyer, Mike, and he should have an answer for you!

    I keep forgetting to look at the available wines, but am interested in low/no sugar wines (similar to what Dry Farm Wines distributes). Are any wines similar to that available in the store? I will ask next time I am in!
