The first quarter of 2019 will bring about a huge change with how China and the United States handle import tariffs. Products made with steel, aluminum, and other metals will see an increase of up to 20% on tariffs if they are imported into the United States. What does this mean for consumers? Most items that are steel, aluminum or iron-based will increase drastically in pricing to offset the cost of the tariffs. Unfortunately, this increase is beyond our control as retailers and as many of our sets have a frame of powder-coated steel - our prices will increase by almost 20% while the new tariffs are in effect.
