Regrettably, at the beginning of each year we get word from some of our manufacturers that there will be price changes. In 2022 much of this has been driven by an increase in the cost of materials along with higher shipping costs. In times of inflation and supply chain challenges that is inevitable. It’s something that affects us all and we are never happy to share that news. Amidst this, we continue to give you our commitment to provide the best possible solutions. Keeping our margins slim is one of them. Another of those solutions comes to us from our partners who provide us a heads up a few weeks before the price increases come into effect.
Starting February 1, 2022, we will be putting the new pricing into place. In the meantime, you have a couple weeks to plan ahead, and get your supplies at the 2021 prices. You can make your purchases at either our Edmonton or Burlington locations. We know January is a busy time for many of you though, and that you may already be working on the latest job and can’t get away. If that’s the case, be sure to order from our website at IRSS.ca. Your order will be shipped to the location of your choice.
In 2022 we continue to give you opportunities to learn at IR. The JME demos that are happening in January at our Edmonton location is one of them. We also have a great selection of courses coming up. We’ll share more details on the courses later this week, so watch for a note from us.
