Around 1,000 products of Swedish retailer Ikea, including mattresses, are running out due to the ongoing supply crisis. 22 UK and Ireland stores have confirmed they are experiencing a major shortage.

Ikea is the latest retailer to be hit by the ongoing supply crisis.

Due to lorry drivers shortage, a number of IKEA branches in the UK are now running out of products, which has left shoppers furious.

Many stores have confirmed they run out of mattresses, which is the most affected item.

IKEA customers were left disappointed after discovering the stock shortages while shopping in stores across the country.

An IKEA spokesperson said: “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.

“What we are seeing is a perfect storm of issues, including the disruption of global trade flows and a shortage of drivers, which have been exacerbated by the pandemic and Brexit,” they added.
