EVERY Ikea store in the UK is experiencing shortages of around 1000 product lines as a direct result of Brexit, reports say.

The Swedish multinational has said that around 10% of its entire range has been impacted across all 22 of its UK sites, three of which are in Scotland.

It is the latest in a string of companies to report shortages as a result of supply issues.

McDonald’s recently ran out of milkshakes across all its Scottish stores, with some shortages also facing other soft drinks.

Coca-Cola said a shortage of aluminium cans was impacting on its supply chain, and Irn-Bru has warned of “increased challenges” facing theirs.

Nando’s, Greggs, Iceland, Co-op, and KFC are just some of the other companies seeing staff shortages impact on supply to UK sites.

A spokesperson for Ikea told the Independent: “Like many retailers, we are experiencing ongoing challenges with our supply chains due to Covid-19 and labour shortages, with transport, raw materials and sourcing all impacted.

“In addition, we are seeing higher customer demand as more people are spending more time at home. As a result, we are experiencing low availability in some of our ranges, including mattresses.

“We hope this will reduce as the situation improves in the coming weeks and months.

“Going forward, we’re constantly looking for more opportunities to secure product availability for our customers and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”

Head of consumer research at courier service ParcelHero, David Jinks, said the UK Government was “refusing to acknowledge and tackle post-Brexit chaos”.

Jinks went on: “This has already led to empty supermarket shelves this summer and high-profile shortages hitting the likes of Wetherspoon and McDonalds.

“British shoppers will have a smaller choice of gifts and food this Christmas and will have to pay more for those items that they can get.”
