It may be time to start Christmas shopping now.

While most of us aren't even thinking about our Christmas plans yet, retail supplies are encouraging people to think about starting their Christmas shopping early, due to supply chain delays.

Public Affairs Manager for Retail New Zealand Aimie Hines told Kerre McIvor that click and collect and shopping early are the best options amid the stock shortages, especially with children.

"We've seen that across most products which may mean that the specific colour or product that you’re looking for may not be available, but there will still be products there, and retailers are definitely trying their best, but obviously there's an issue impacting all of that."
