Year end mega blow out on fortune auto and bc


Unfortunately the prices on Fortune Auto are going up on January 1st. Get locked into the price now! We're still running deep deep discounts for our holiday sales.

Each and every one of these are built to order, sprung and valved specifically for your application. These are built and serviced right here in the US. Rebuilding rather than replacing means these are cheaper in the long run. They are modular so they can be upgraded at any time. We can upgrade to the double digressive piston for more motorsports oriented use. We can add external reservoirs, etc.

We've got all the other parts to get your suspension and alignment in order!*.

Inflation, cost of living adjustments for their workers, cost of materials, etc.

Why on god's green earth should we foot the bill for their employees cost of living adjustments. Will steer clear of them in the future.

Why do new cars cost more year after year despite no major changes or upgrades being made to the model?

Why are food items more expensive this year than last year?

What is inflation?

Quite a few companies have raised MSRP year over year.

People want things to be American made but aren't willing to support the American labor force.

What I believe was meant here is that with inflation as well as economic development the cost of living and operations increases in an area over time for all employees and employers globally. This along with operating costs, investments in new machinery, increased R&D time, etc. makes cost adjustments necessary.

This happens every single day with different aftermarket companies, many of them increased prices this month. What isn't normal however is the way it was poorly explained in this thread.

You are absolutely correct. Thanks for the clarification.

Very familiar with how business works thank you.

I'm not arguing with the price hike, I understand that material costs go up, they've probably expanded. Food items? Come on.

But TELLING me that you're charging ME more so that you can get YOUR employees in fancier digs does not make me want to buy your product, at all. That has nothing to do with being American made, it's just a business decision.

This has nothing to do with OUR employees. We are not Fortune, simply their dealers. This price increase is not our decision.

A cost-of-living index is a theoretical price index that measures relative cost of living over time or regions. It is an index that measures differences in the price of goods and services, and allows for substitutions with other items as prices vary. This cost increases as other factors effect it. It's not about fancier digs, it's about employing and retaining employees and taking care of them. Or should we let your boss know that you'd like to pass on getting a raise?

Again, I never stated that these companies employees are moving into hilltop houses, if that were the case I'd be excited and looking for a new place.

What "cost of living adjustments for their workers" was more than likely suppose to impose was a raise in the cost of living in the area that they live which applies to shop rent, their rent, etc.

Generally that is never listed as an "official" reason for a price increase but I'm sure is always an underlying reason in a cost increase from all of the manufacturers I personally deal with.

Also I just want to clarify I am in no way associated with THMotorsports or Fortune Auto, I'm simply speaking from a retailer point of view in the industry.
