Supply chain issues are a tremendous concern for the small business community especially as the holiday season approaches.

“Small businesses are just having a tremendously difficult time getting the supplies that they need to run their business, and, of course, this is even more concerning with the holiday season approaching,” said Elliot Richardson, president of the Small Business Advocacy Council in Chicago.

He said the supply-chain problems are impacting all kinds of retailers.

“We heard a lot about it from restaurants. From folks who sell T-shirts. From embroidery businesses. You know, really, from businesses who are consumer-facing who need to serve food, get product out to their customers,” Richardson said.

Even business owners who don’t have physical storefronts but rely on imports to make their products here are having a tough time.

Small Business Advocacy Council's Elliot Richardson discusses this with WBEZ on both audio and in print here:
