Some stores have been experiencing shortages of items recently. Now, it’s almost impossible to buy a freezer. “I know the manufacturers are playing catch-up but it is a nationwide issue,” said Miller. And it’s an issue with big box home improvement stores like Menard’s and Lowe’s, which are also out of freezers. Kaczmarek says he gets calls every day asking for freezers. But both stores say they don’t know how they’ll get more freezers during this time with the demand being so high. The local stores didn’t have a specific date they’d be back in stock.
