Consumer Warrior Clark Howard says surge in online sales leading to challenges in delivery

Jacksonville, FL — Some retailers are reporting record numbers for online sales amid the coronavirus outbreak, but WOKV's Consumer Warrior Clark Howard says the surge in demand is coming with some challenges.

If you have noticed some delays in orders actually arriving at your house, Howard explains it's not an isolated issue.

"You know [Amazon] Prime delivery before in many communities, one-day delivery on a lot of things, two-day delivery on others. And Amazon is struggling to now get back to that, after lengthy delays," says Howard.

Howard says it's not just Amazon either.

"Others that have very heavily pivoted from traditional in-store shopping to having so many people buy online are struggling to get those deliveries on to some kind of reliable basis," Howard says.
