Prices rising 25th March !

Just a little advance warning:  We shall be increasing our retail prices with effect from 25th March, when the new UK postal rates come into force.

In fact, this year, there are only very small increases on small parcels and no increase at all on the larger Parcelforce ones, so that is very welcome GOOD NEWS !

On the downside, though, is the continuing uncertainty over exchange rates, which directly affects all our Glaser tools, the EarthWay range and the Ho-Mis from South Korea.  If and when the exchange rates stabilise in favour of the £ Sterling, then rest assured that we shall be able to adjust our prices downwards again, as we have done before.

For the first time in several years, Glasers in Switzerland have needed to increase their prices because of the upward trend of global steel prices, and BroadFork prices have suffered from the same effect.

Our margins remain pretty tight but we shall endeavour to keep them that way in order to keep prices as reasonable as we can.

We expect to change the prices on our website overnight on 24th / 25th March, so please plan ahead and save by ordering before then.  If we get a last-minute rush, then we shall honour the lower prices but will need some time to catch up, so it will help us to help you if you are able to order before the deadline.

Thanks.
