DMC has announced a price increase on their floss (AGAIN)! The MSRP will be $0.91 per skein and the MAP pricing will be at $0.56 per skein. MAP stands for Minimum Advertised Pricing and will be the lowest price a store can sell their floss for. So this price will be for all the big chain stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Jo-Ann Fabrics. The price increase will take place on September 10, 2018.
Where are you seeing this? There is nothing on the dmc website.
No, DMC will generally not mention to its customers when a price increase is about to happen. They do, however, tell their distributors so they can prepare. My main distributor contacted its stores to let them know ahead of time so that they can stock up at the old price. I’ve seen quite a few stores mentioning on their facebook pages that the price will be going up on September 10.
