Most of not all of their stock is imported from Japan. There’s a worldwide supply chain issue due to COVId. Thus, their supply is low.

A stocking supply issue. Even my local Asian grocery store goes in waves of having things to empty shelves and freezers.

The store in question here can be found in EPCOT’s World Showcase, an area dedicated to offering authentic cuisine shopping and entertainment experiences to Guests from various countries and cultures. Due to the current supply chain crisis, getting certain merchandise and even food into the Orlando, Flroida Park has proven difficult.
