In recent months, Learning Resources has experienced the negative effects of sudden, rapid inflation. Our transportation, energy, material and supply costs have risen beyond what we could have anticipated when we printed our 2008 catalogs. It is with regret that I inform you of our decision to increase prices effective June 17, 2008.
Rest assured that as a company, we strive to keep prices low. We are hard at work on coming up with solutions that will allow us to offer low prices in challenging economic times, without sacrificing quality. In the short term, however, it saddens us that raising prices is our only option.
Thank you for understanding. We look forward to continuing to provide you with high-quality classroom products and hands-on learning toys that engage and inspire children.
