Can you believe Opulent Blends began nearly four years ago? We can’t thank our loyal fans enough for believing in our company and its products. You continue to be a constant factor in the growth of our business. As we continue to strive for success, we have come to the conclusion that it is pertinent for us to raise our retail prices. Though it was a tough decision, please note that we haven't increased our SRP since we launched Opulent Blends in the fall of 2015. Expenses, ingredients and packaging costs continue to rise, some 150% (for instance, our laundry soap containers have increased by almost $2 in the last year) and we just couldn't continue offering our products at their current prices.
Marc and I spent the last two weeks finalizing our current COG and increased our retail prices on June 1st. Please note, some prices have not increased! This is due to the fact that our ingredient and packaging costs have not inflated for those items. We have no desire to increase prices on products when it is not necessary. Should they rise in the future, we will have to increase those as well, but we don't expect to have to restock on those items for the remainder of this calendar year.
Introducing: Market Mondays
We are sad to confirm that we will not be participating in many events this summer, if any at all. All of our events are on hold at the moment. My mom was involved in a terrible accident on Feb. 18th. She has not been able to return home since being rushed to the hospital that afternoon. Due to this, there is no way we can commit to being a seasonal vendor at the Farmers Market this year. That was part of my mom’s "job" as she worked Tuesday through Saturdays during vending season for us.
As a result of receiving numerous inquiries about our participation at the Farmers Market and other seasonal events, we have decided to start offering Market Mondays at the shop. During the months of June, July and August, we will have the shop open EVERY MONDAY from 10AM - 4PM. Anyone that drops in to shop with us during that time will receive 25% off their ENTIRE PURCHASE (may not be combined with other discounts).
WHEN: Mondays 10AM-4PM during the months of June through August.
WHERE: 10511 West H Ave, Kalamazoo
Cannot make it before 4PM? Just email or message us...we might be able to accommodate.
We hope many of you will take advantage of Market Mondays this season. We LOVE meeting our fans! *We will be on vacation a few Mondays this summer, please be sure to check Facebook page for updates.
