Bricos (Mermet) and Four Families - Price Adjustment 

Notice From Bricos: BRICOS is implementing a price adjustment, covering all products under the BRICOS, MERMET and TURNILS brands.  With the continued steady decline in the Australian Dollar, it has become necessary to increase list prices for all BRICOS products.  Every effort has been made to absorb increased costs wherever possible, for as long as possible.  We are not passing on the full adjustment of the currency decline, in order to keep this price adjustment to a minimum.

Notice From Four Families: In an effort to maintain a competitive position in our window covering market, we have spent the past 6 months improving our operations, warehousing efficiencies and working closely with our weaving partners. These improvements allow us to minimise the size of an unavoidable price increase, linked to the strengthening of the USD.

Price Changes effective from 1st October 2015.  Betta Blinds have absorbed the majority of the price increases however Category F & G for In House Roller Blinds pricing has been adjusted. Please use attached updated fabric list and In House Roller Blinds Price List (both attached) which reflects these changes. (please discard/delete any previous versions)

These fabrics have gone up a price Category: DL (Designer Label) Sunscreen, Clovelly Sheer, Kiribati Translucent, Savona Blockout and Summit Translucent. These fabrics have gone down a price category: Scarborough Translucent, Kiribati Blockout, Parnell Translucent are now Category F.  Tremont Light Filtering now down to Category 1 for Panels/Romans.
