    Note from Lawrence Wolfin,

    Unfortunately, we’ve had to suspend the 5% discount offerings recently due to the economics of doing business.  It has been one of, if not the, hardest years to be in business. Every singe product we source has gone up in both price and inbound transportation/freight.

    Best regards,

    Lawrence Wolfin

    Ladies and Gentlemen:

    Two years into the pandemic and our business environment is still very challenging.  Old rules often don't apply, and predictions and forecasts are wrong as much as right.  Fortunately, HOME has continued to be a priority.  

    I'd like to recap where we are now in our ability to service you and share our updated price lists with you.  

    • Our factories and distribution centers are still mostly operating at capacity.  Shipments are at an all-time high now and should stay at a higher level for the foreseeable future.  
    • Our office staff is fully engaged and working heavy overtime, but is not able to respond to the volume of calls and emails promptly.  This has never happened before the pandemic and surge in business.  We will not be content until we are staffed up and responding quickly as we all expect.  Note there is no drop in our overall service level, quality expectations, etc, only the response time.  I'm sorry for any frustrations with slow responses.  
    • Shipping time.  Assuming no delays due to inventory availability, we are now shipping orders in one week on average.  
    • Inventory levels in both distribution centers are improving weekly, and are MUCH better than the second half of '21.  We still recommend you use the in-stock filters on our website, which are available after you log in and select a product category.
    • Containers on the water remain at unprecedented levels.  We are keeping about 700 containers on the water until our inventory on both coasts is back to where it should be.  Product from Vietnam is still what is most out-of-stock.  
    • Costs continue to go up rapidly in every direction.  The biggest increase continues to be container costs.  We are often paying $15,000 and more per container.  We had projected slightly lower costs by now, but we were wrong on this, again.  Our priority is to build our inventory back up rather than minimize costs.  The costs we are absorbing are well above expectations.
    • Please note that we are reluctant to raise prices now, but we don't feel that we have a choice.  This price increase is effective for orders placed beginning March 1st.  The increase does not apply to orders written prior to March 1st, no matter when we ship.  We don't think this would be fair to you.  We also have never added a shipping surcharge to orders.
    For our updated price lists, please click the link below.  The average increase to you is under 4%.

    Thank you for your business and your patience.  We know business is equally challenging on your end, and we want to be the best partners possible.


    High Point Market is early this year, April 2-6.  We hope to see you in person!  

    Sincerely,


    Mac Cooper, President

    Market Conditions Drive Increase in Product Pricing for 2022

    In response to the ongoing rapid rise in the cost of labor, materials, supplies, shipping, and other operating expenses affecting all U.S. businesses in this period of inflation, ADR will implement an adjustment in the prices of most of its products effective February 28.

    Generally, prices were increased 8-10%; however, adjustments were considered on a product-by-product basis, so some increased more while others were unchanged. Our web site will reflect these adjustments next Monday, February 28. The new pricing also is present in the 2022 Product Guide which will be available in March.

    ADR is committed to selling exclusively to the trade and delivering a steady supply of an expansive selection of fine quality drapery hardware. Every ADR employee keeps a constant eye on quality and shares a personal responsibility for ensuring you have a premium experience with our company. We appreciate your understanding and are grateful for every order you send our way.

    Thank You!

After March 31st, Folia’s remaining inventory of Ralph Lauren fabric and wallcovering will be available for sale though Kravet. Product availability will be dependent on Folia’s remaining inventory.

    For future product availability throughout this period, Ralph Lauren fabric and wallcovering stock information can be obtained on http://checkstock.folia-fabrics.com or through Folia’s website, http://customers.folia-fabrics.com.
