I know, transportation costs are up. But that doesn't explain why window glass (which is available locally) has increased as much as 40% from our OOCSGS recently (we also buy it locally- it really hasn't gone up at all in the last year). Actually, glass that we buy direct has become even cheaper in some cases due to a much stronger Canadian dollar now compensating for higher transportation costs.
What are we doing to try and offset this?
We begin a series of truck shipments from the U.S. with the first, from Bullseye arriving on Sept. 2. We've already determined our costs and see no changes in pricing (with some even dropping). Bullseye has had no factory price increase this year.
Following Bullseye, we've got a truck coming with glass and tools (such as circle lens cutters)(no CSA required). Three other U.S. sourced shipments follow in mid-September, but we'll fill you in on what's on these later...
