The local Meijer supermarket in my town is still having issues with stocking items. I believe it's a question of supply chains, rather than a lack of employees. As I think has been mentioned before, branch stores in areas with denser population take priority over branches in smaller towns. Once, a few months back, the peanut butter was almost emptied from the shelves. Peanut butter!! Now, eggs and milk, soap, baking supplies, or pasta and tomatoes, I could understand...but peanut butter? I didn't think that many people ate the stuff.
