Ryan Kadota with Kadota Liquor in Hilo says the liquor supply could be disrupted because of a supply-chain issue nationwide.

A nationwide supply shortage is causing distribution concerns in Hawaii, particularly when it comes to cocktails for Thanksgiving.

HILO, Hawaii (KITV4) -- A nationwide supply shortage is causing distribution concerns in Hawaii, particularly when it comes to cocktails for Thanksgiving.

Some suppliers are asking customers to be flexible when buying alcohol.

Ryan Kadota with Kadota Liquor in Hilo says this is because of a supply-chain issue nationwide.

"A lot of our regular items may not be in stock but don't get me wrong the shelves are not empty. They are not bare. There are a lot of alternative things," Kadota said.

Kadota added if you're set on getting a certain item, he recommends calling the store before you go to make sure they have it in stock.
