When we built Great American in 2004, one of our founding principles was having the largest selection in the area of in stock merchandise that was ready to be picked up or delivered.
That remains the same in 2020. However, the disruption to the global supply chain brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and the surge in customer demand after initial lockdowns lifted has left most retailers, including Great American, low on in-stock merchandise without ready replenishment. In addition, furniture manufacturers across the country have experienced labor shortages, additional shutdowns, high demand, and difficulty in acquiring raw materials for furniture production.
Our management and Merchandising teams at Great American are hard at work on finding sources of inventory with faster turn around times so that we can continue to offer the same level of availability the Mid-South community has come to rely on us for.
In the meantime, we are grateful for your patience as we experience longer than normal delays with items arriving in our warehouses and lower stock levels on our everyday items.
