Just a few days left!
All the big manufacturers usually have an annual price increase that hits around May or June. This year it is set for May 1. After being generous last year, considering the economy and difficulties associated with the housing and related industries, most manufactures didn’t increase pricing last year. This year no such luck. The price increase is here.
So where can we see increases and which products will be affected by it? We can say, pretty much across the board. We will see increases with all brands, including Hunter Douglas, Bali & Comfortex. Every brand will go up with most of their product lines. This will include cellular shades, wood blinds, faux wood blinds and our popular sheer shades line.
And how much will these products increase? Up to 7%. Ouch! We know… painful. The majority of shades, cellular shades etc will be around 4-5%. As always we have plenty of quotes and proposals out on the Shangri-La Sheer Shades. On a product like this, which is on the upper end in regards to overall pricing, 5% can make quite a difference. So, with that in mind, here is our blog to inform and help you beat new pricing which is just around the corner.
