Rifle Surcharge

We have an update regarding one of our product lines. On April 1st, we were notified of a large price increase on the wood that we use to manufacture our wooden parade rifles. This increase was effective immediately for any new orders placed. This is the fourth increase we have received since the beginning of 2021, and while we have tried our best to hold our pricing on this product line, we can no longer absorb the entire cost.

The overall increase in cost for this wood has gone up nearly 50% this year. We also incurred an increase of 8% in our corrugated box prices in January, and received notice a week ago that our boxes will be going up another 10% this May. All of these increases are being driven by large, increased demands for lumber, as well as for linerboard to make corrugated boxes.

Rather than simply raising the prices of our wooden rifles, we felt that employing a “surcharge” for each rifle would be best. This surcharge will allow for adaptability in the future should lumber continue to rise, or fall. While we do expect at some point for the wood prices to begin decreasing, the timing is uncertain.

We wanted to provide at least one month notice about this change. This will allow you to notify any of your customers that may be considering ordering rifles from you before implementing this surcharge.Accordingly, we will begin adding a surcharge amount of $2.35 on each wooden parade rifle that is purchased from us on or after June 7, 2021 (PLEASE NOTE: effective September 20, 2021, this wooden rifle surcharge is being increased to $2.65/rifle). We regret having to do this, but we cannot continue to absorb these large cost increases. Please note that this surcharge only applies to our wooden parade rifles, and not on our plastic Elite PRO rifles.

We greatly value your business and appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve you and your customers.

Podium Surcharge

We have an update regarding one of our product lines.We have done our best to maintain pricing on our Command Center podiums and carts, however we can no longer do so. We have experienced large increases in box pricing, as well as increases in material cost. Material costs have now gone up so much that we can no longer hold the current pricing.

As we did with our rifles earlier this season, rather than simply raising the prices of our podiums, we felt that employing a “surcharge” for each of our podiums/carts/accessories would be best.This surcharge will allow for adaptability in the future should costs continue to rise or fall.While we do expect at some point for the material prices to begin decreasing, the timing is uncertain.

We wanted to be proactive about this change.This will allow you to notify any of your customers that may be considering ordering podiums/carts/accessories from you before implementing this surcharge.Accordingly, we will begin adding a surcharge amount of 10% on each Command Center Podium/cart/accessory that is ordered from us on or after August 7, 2021.We regret having to do this, but we cannot continue to absorb these large cost increases.Please note that this surcharge only applies to orders placed on or after August 7, 2021. Orders that are on backorder here with us will be invoiced at pricing in place when ordered.

We greatly value your business and appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve you and your customers.

Electronics Surcharge

We have been notified of a new price increase, effective on September 1, 2021, for all Sound Projection products, including the Sound Machine and Voice Machine.

There was a previous increase of 5% that we had not originally passed on, but this new increase of 10% is too much to continue to absorb, so we must increase our pricing for all electronics effective on September 1, 2021.

As always, we greatly appreciate your business, and your patience, as we all are dealing with many challenging issues this season.

Uniform Racks

As we have recently been given a very large price increase on some uniform racks that we sell, we must now issue an immediate increase on these items. Unfortunately, this increase was too large to absorb.

Effective immediately, here is the new pricing on the following three items:

Item #BNUR Uniform Storage Rack – Collapsible style 
MSRP:  $135.00

Item #BNURH Uniform Storage Rack – “H” style
MSRP:  $226.00

Item #BNURZ Uniform Storage Rack – “Z” style
MSRP:  $226.00

As always, we appreciate your support and understanding as we deal with these types of situations.
