It’s hard to believe the holiday shopping season is around the corner. Business analyst Matthew Osborn encourages you to start finding deals sooner rather than later:

“I think businesses are going to be stretched to give the bargains that they usually get. They are not going to have this supply that’s going to attract the people, therefore the prices are going to be higher. Prices are going to be higher and the quantity available is going to be lower.”

Osborn says electronics and anything with a circuit board will be challenging to find. Due to supply shortages, he expects gift card sales to increase.
