As we all have seen the start of 2021 has been very challenging with daily price increases and product shortages. We strive daily to keep products in stock at competitive prices and give you as much notice as possible when price changes, however some of the companies we buy from are not giving us any advanced notice of price increases. The price increases we are getting from some vendors are effective when it is announced.
Unfortunately, because of the supply chain issues we have very little stock and are forced to raise our price on products effective immediately. Many vendors have also announced recent increases that have already taken place effecting PVC pipe, copper pipe, steel pipe, fittings, water heaters, and almost all fixtures. We have always tried to honor quotes for at least 30 days but due to the fast pace of increases we cannot do that at this time.
These are challenging times for all of us that we hope will subside very soon. We will continue to be diligent to control costs and work hard to provide quality products and services at competitive prices. We thank you for your past, current, and future business.
