It’s not just the items on the shelves that are disappearing (Triple M)


The latest strain of the virus is starting to cause havoc with the supply of a number of food and essential items, with empty shelves appearing in many supermarket aisles. Now we’re seeing staff disappearing as well, as Omicron spreads like wildfire and impacts retailers’ abilities to roster enough staff.

In this interview, my second on this subject, this time with Pablo Miller from Triple M, we discuss the challenges facing retailers as the supply and staffing issues continue on.
