ANBL Supply Chain Update

 

As we all know, COVID-19 has had major impacts on many elements of our day to day lives. One of those impacts you may have noticed is around global supply chain, and that some of our products in stores are not always available. ANBL has been closely monitoring the challenges facing our supply chain and trying to manage them.

An increase in demand on consumer goods has added pressure on traditional supply chains due to pandemic restrictions and as a result, various factors have resulted in a decrease in available shipments.

  • ANBL is currently dealing with some delays due to some natural disasters occurring around the world. Most recently, the floods in British Columbia have prevented goods from departing on time due to road closures.
  • ANBL has been informed that several of our suppliers are experiencing material shortages which include glass and bottle closures. These material shortages have caused some delay in ANBL sourcing products.
  • ANBL has also seen a large surge in champagne and sparkling wine during the latter half of the pandemic. This unprecedented increase in demand has unfortunately left us in a situation where we will likely be out of some of our most popular Champagnes in the lead up to Christmas, Veuve Clicquot and Moet & Chandon.

We appreciate your understanding should we experience any delays or issues related to availability of popular or imported products. Our experienced team members in our stores will be happy recommend some wonderful alternative suggestions and recommendations if we do not have the product, you want available.

We are working closely with our international supply chain partners and suppliers to stay informed during this evolving situation and we continue to plan to allow for increased transit time. While we are experiencing this situation, we still have a wide-ranging portfolio to cover customers needs in most situations.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to monitor the situation and adapt accordingly.
