(Reuters) – Dollar General Corp (NYSE:) said on Wednesday its shelves would be stacked with regular Halloween and holiday products this year even as many other U.S. retailers grapple with empty racks due to COVID-19-triggered supply chain issues.

“We’re facing some of the same challenges as others, but our team has done a really nice job of really working a multitude of levers to get the merchandise here,” Chief Operating Officer Jeff Owen said at the Barclays (LON:) Global Consumer Staples Conference.
