Today while on our normal postal run, our really nice, part time, postmaster informed us that all the prices at our post office were going up AGAIN! In the past since these hikes were a few cents here and there, we just ate the cost to make our customers happy. This time things are going up by dollars not cents.
So what does that mean?? Well, it means that the boxes we use to normally mail out our reasonably priced bags of fiber now cost as much to mail as we sell them for! So here is my question of the day to all of you. Would you pay more to get it faster or would you pay less and be comfortable getting things a bit slower if you knew it was going to be slow to start with?? Either way we are having to consider raising prices to cover shipping costs and I really don't think it is fair but there isn't much anyone here on the farm can do about it.
Please let us know your thoughts.
