I guess that my clients are not going to be legitimately cheerful when they find out that I have to raise all of the prices on services, but the recession has hit myself and others hard & things have not been the same since the start of the pandemic, and business went down the toilet when I had to take a couple of weeks off of work.
I have not definitely been able to recover from that since it occurred.
I am the owner of an Evansville heating, ventilation, & A/C service! My family & I have been in the supplier for 40 years. I hate to raise the prices now, because I guess that pretty much everyone is hurting, then we’re all feeling the pain at the pump & pretty much everyone is affected by the price of food abruptly increasing each & every week. I have not seen the price of gas this high in Evansville, Indiana, since the early 2000s. I have done my best to keep prices low for as long as I can, but I certainly have to raise the prices of official services that I supply to my commercial clients. Many of the commercial Heating and A/C clients in Evansville, Indiana are on a payment plan, however some of them wait 90 afternoons before they pay the minimum on their account & I cannot afford to wait that long for payment when my family & I are starving. I sent out an email to many of my sizable commercial buyers. I asked them to get with myself and others suddenly so every one of us can discuss all of the new pricing. I don’t want anyone to find out the disappointing news other than from me.
