If your house was built in the 90s, then chances are it’s filled with red…
How about we start this brand new year out with some good news.
Scratch that…make that GREAT news!
Over the past three years, the COVID pandemic has caused serious supply chain disruptions. These were caused by factories shutting down, shipping to be a complete nightmare, and worker shortages in nearly every industry.
As a result, we received email after email from companies that were raising their prices from 3% to 5% to 10%, and adding surcharge after surcharge onto shipping and transportation. In our unofficial calculation, prices of furniture went up around 35% (factory to client).
Although we, globally, are not completely rid of COVID, we are past the emergency that it once was and things are sloooowwwwlly returning to normal (whatever that is.)
Over the past month or so (including one today as I was preparing to write this blog post) we have received notifications from several companies that are LOWERING their prices!
CAN WE GET A HALLELUJAH?!?!?!
Not only that, but more products are available to ship immediately and custom goods, like upholstered furniture and cabinetry, have a shorter lead time. What had been a 12-18 month wait for a custom sofa is mostly back to 12-18 weeks. A kitchen full of custom cabinetry is down from a 6 month wait to a more normal 3 months.
THANK YOU, JESUS!!!
Now, that doesn’t mean there won’t be waits, or that everything is in stock all the time, but generally speaking, things are moving in the right direction.
We can all use some good news when we can get it!
