Yippee- Dollar breaks 95 cents!
A strong Canadian Dollar definately has a downside on the economy, but I'm the Editor, so I get to control the slant of the news. That's right- position does have it's priviledges! I will therefore dwell only on the positives- in particular, for our stained glass industry.
A recent Aanraku order now means that jewelry bails that sold in the twenty five dollar range will now arrive at our store next week and sell for around nineteen bucks! Or, how about a 3/4" grinder head for under fifteen bucks!
Prices will continue to drop as we continue to pursue alternate suppliers to take advantage of a stronger Canadian market- something we've yet to see with our Canadian suppliers or competitors (Mikey might even buy some new jokes with the money he saves)...
