Canadians - price increases coming soon!
The Canadian dollar has lost more than 10% against the US dollar since this time last year. Up until now, most of our suppliers haven't adjust their prices. In fact, products from Numark, Alesis, Akai, and M-Audio are 15-20% lower in Canada than the US based on current exchange rates!
However, most of our suppliers have indicated that prices will be going up later this week, and once we sell out of our stock on products at the lower price, we will be forced to raise our prices as well. This means now is a good time to buy! Of course, even after the increases, our Canadian customers will find that our overall price is still lower than purchasing in the US and paying the exchange rate, credit card currency exchange fees, shipping, brokerage charges and duty.
