Box Shortage?

I know that lots of stuff is starting to run short due to the chicom lung herpes upsetting logistics around the world, but has anyone else heard of this?

Procuring cigar boxes is an ongoing issue and the problems are progressively getting worse — Whether you blame it on updated safety precautions due to the pandemic, the rising cost of wood, transport issues, or whatever else, the result is the same: cigar boxes are becoming more and more difficult to procure. This issue has already had an impact on multiple releases from at least three manufacturers I talked with. Interestingly, the issues seem to be present in all three major non-Cuban tobacco growing countries—the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Nicaragua—and very few people I talked to had any real hope that the situation would do anything but get worse over the coming months.
