INDIANAPOLIS — Here's Thursday's What's the Deal consumer headlines.
Pumpkins in short supply
A pumpkin shortage is creeping across the country.
The lack of inventory is yet another consequence of the COVID-19 shipping crisis.
Extreme weather has also picked off pumpkins, and fewer pumpkins will likely mean higher prices.
Supply chain issues impact Halloween stores
Halloween stores are also being haunted by issues.
Some store owners say its been tough getting costumes and decorations in stock.
From congested ports to truck driver shortages, the ongoing supply chain issues mean products are still stuck in transit.
And one of the costumes selling out fast is the track suit inspired by the Netflix hit "Squid Game."
