BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The supply chain crisis is expected to make for a frustrating holiday shopping season as consumers struggle to find what they need on store shelves.

On News 4 at 5:30, we heard from Dr. Nallan Suresh, an expert from the University at Buffalo, he said shoppers will see fewer choices and higher prices this holiday season.

“They may not be able to get the exact products they want to get, so the product variety will be less and there will be less discounts. So consumers have to pay slightly higher prices,” Dr. Suresh said.
