Branches and customers all over the UK are reporting a lack of fans in the middle of the unusually hot weather.
Customers have found the fans to be out of the camp in the branches of large retail chains such as Tesco, Argos, Sainsbury’s and Wilko.
Some have used social media to air about the difficulties that you have faced the purchase of a fan.
A London-based buyer said he had to go to seven different stores before he was able to buy was to.
Steven bridges, a magician, and vlogger, says that his mission began, on “a large Sainsbury’s in South London”, but he found himself lucky as later in M&S, TK Maxx, and Argos only premium fans had available.
“It was nothing up to £50, the upper end of my fan-household.”
Mr bridges left disappointed more Shop, before finally securing a fan, he would have noticed, in the window of a stationary shop.
He posted a photo on Twitter to mark the occasion.

Wilko confirmed from the fans and blamed it on “increased demand for summer essentials”, the “record sales”.
Pete Hardie, Housewares buyer at Wilko, said: “the sale of our summer essentials, including the fans, were up to 90% on our best season yet.
“Top-selling items were, stand fans for cooling larger rooms, Desk fans for smaller spaces, and handheld fans,” he added.
Argos has now resorted to posting a warning on its website.
As a buyer, you enter the search term “fan”, a tailored message informs the customer that the fans are “low in stock.”
“We really have the feeling of the heat in the last few weeks,” it reads.
Sainsbury’s and Tesco will not respond to inquiries about your fan supply.

The increase in demand coincides with a prolonged period of hot weather across the country.
The Met Office says the temperature was about 28C somewhere in the UK every day for 15 days, from the 25. June to 9. July, and for 22 days in a total of up to 7.August.
Although not unprecedented, this is an unusual spell of hot weather, “the Met Office is” apparently to be added.
Many people are turning to the fans to cool and ventilate the rooms in your houses, since most houses and apartments in the UK do not have air conditioning.
Figures from a decade ago suggest that only 0.5% of properties in the UK had installed an air conditioning system in the time.
