Harrods delays summer sale due to supply chain disruption
The Harrods department store has delayed its summer sale by two weeks due to global supply chain disruption.
The retailer said the issue has left it short of stock.
Michael Ward, Harrods managing director told Bloomberg TV at the Qatar Economic Forum: “Our supply chain is running two to three weeks behind where it should be. A good example of that is, we’ve just delayed the summer sale by two weeks because I need another 10% of new season stock to allow me to function into the new year.”
Ward also revealed that the situation has been exacerbated by the impact of Brexit. He added: “It’s almost impossible to find the right staff. We’ve lost significant amounts of people as a result of Brexit. And it’s not the skilled or qualified, it’s the people we need to do the jobs that unfortunately the British will not do.”
