More than a quarter of Britons have started their Christmas shopping – because the lack of supply and delivery drivers makes it difficult to find gifts.
A survey found that about 45 percent said they plan to leave large online retailers to avoid disappointment while 31 percent shop locally.
About half of those surveyed said they wanted to buy a bigger and more affordable gift – and only more than half said they had more cash to spend thanks to the Quaid Lockdown.
About half also said they intend to start buying gifts at least by October. But despite their best intentions, 59% admitted that they would probably buy last-minute gifts on Amazon.
Digital Customer Specialist Site Core, which surveyed 1,000 buyers, said: “Retailers will undoubtedly face supply chain disruption, which can mean frustrated customers and negative reviews.
“Winners will be those who meet the speed and speed of the online service, manage their supply chain risk well, and make interesting purchases of a personal nature.”
