CANTON, Mass. — If you’ve tried to buy furniture, mattresses, vehicles, boats, or appliances recently, you’ve probably noticed higher prices and longer waits, sometimes up to 6 months.
“The prices are going up,” said Maria Decordova of Brookline after walking into her sixth furniture store Friday. “Finding furniture has been a nightmare. I just moved a month ago and every time you go to any store they really are asking you to pay and then will deliver in six months, eight months.”
Don’t blame the store; instead, blame a nationwide foam shortage.
