Maureen Smithe, of Walter E. Smithe, joins Anna to explain why it is taking extra time for furniture (and other big ticket items) to be delivered to their final destinations. Maureen says the delays have been caused by a variety of things including record demand, factories that have had to shutdown because of the pandemic, the storms earlier the year in Texas and freight and transportation delays.
