From all of us at Adore Home Living we would like to thank all of you for your support through what has again been an unpredictable year for all of us.
Whilst 2021 thus far has almost been ‘life as normal’ for us here in Perth, it certainly has not been the case for us as a local furniture retailer.
2021 has brought many obstacles our way and because of this we have had to change and adjust in many areas of our company to ensure we can continue to share what we do with our valued customers.
- Increase in Shipping costs
Shipping costs have more than quadrupled this year, meaning we have had to be very selective in our reordering processes and minimize our core range.
- Container Shortages
Container shortages at our port of dispatch has meant our suppliers have not been able to ship stock to us within the original expected time frames, causing many delays in our products arriving on time for our customers.
- Long expected delays
Not only are we experiencing container delays, but we are also experiencing delays in supplier manufacturing, due to material shortages and factory production times.
- Increase in Production Costs
Our suppliers have increased production pricing due to material price increases and production demand.
So far, Adore Home Living has done everything possible to keep our prices down and keep our customers well informed with any delays that have occurred effecting their orders.
All additional costs have been absorbed by Adore Home Living, as you can imagine this is not ideal for the long-term future of our company.
Ideally, we have most items readily available, ready to meet our customer’s needs, but we will have several products at times that will require a waiting time, this decision is at the discretion of the customer of course and we will keep you up to date the entire way.
For now, we will aim to keep our pricing as low as we possibly can for our valued customers, however an increase in several products will be necessary over the coming month to account for the increase in the shipping and production costs mentioned previously.
To avoid disappointment, we encourage our customers to order now.
We offer layby and finance options on most items. Visit your local store or contact them today.
Keep an eye out on our social media pages for updates, and most importantly of all, stay safe.
The Adore Home Living Team.
