Madison, Tennessee — The monument and tombstone industry is affected by supply chain challenges.
You can usually get the stone in a few weeks, but due to the lack of truck drivers, it can take months depending on where you ordered.
The Schultz Monument Company designs tombstones and monuments for its customers. Owner Richard Schutz explained on TikTok how long it would take to place an order abroad.

Schultz said it was the worst, as the baby boomer generation expects a 40% increase in deaths as they get older. He says they are seeing a 25% increase in orders.
