2019 Tariffs

On Friday, May 10, 2019 the United States Government implemented a 25% tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese imported goods.  The new imposed tariffs apply to all Chinese goods shipped on or after Friday, May 10, 2019.  These shipments should take about 3 weeks to hit U.S. ports.  A few of our suppliers have already reached out letting us know they will be increasing prices due to the latest tariff.  We are currently working with each supplier and are closely monitoring the situation.

Below is a listing of those suppliers who have notified us along with their imposed effective date, and the details of the price increase (increase percentage along with product affected).

We appreciate your understanding and patience during this critical time.
