WASHINGTON — Retailers are experiencing significant delays in processing cargo at the Port of New York and New Jersey and are growing concerned that the backlog could lead to empty shelves in stores.
The Retail Industry Leaders Association sent a letter to Patrick J. Foye, executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and deputy executive director Deborah L. Gramiccioni, imploring officials to help alleviate the backlog, while outlining a series of initiatives the industry believes will resolve the situation.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
