Anecdote, I had to go to the local shopping centre today to get some keys cut. The bloke who runs the franchise is tearing his hair out, he can’t get supply of blank keys, he imports from the US but all the smelters are shut again and the post is absurdly slow even when he can place orders.
Net result he’s turning away every other customer. Apparently a smelter costs a million bucks per key type so they can’t justify local manufacture in a market like Perth.
Same with his leather for boot repairs, he orders it in bulk from Italy but again the manufacturers are all shut again,
