I wanted to give a heads up to my fellow February brides. I got a shocking phone call from my Mom last night. Apparently she went to Macy's and they were completly out of several of our registry items including our dishes, flatware and glasses. I was shocked! My Mom said there were bare shelves all over the store.
Apparently in anticipation of a bad Holiday shopping season retailers did not stock their shelves like they normally would. They are also not in a hurry to re-stock either. When my Mom talked to a Sales Associate she said they weren't even doing inventory for another week.
I had previously read some news articles that late Holiday shoppers were finding bare shelves but it didn't even occur to me to think about our registry.
I realize this may be different for each retailer, but you may want to physically go into the store(s) and check it out.
We are going tonight to practically re-do our registry a month before the wedding!
