My partner & I run a local heating & AC business, a single of the complications that all of us have been having recently with our Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier is that all of us are selling out of products faster than I can stock them.
I think this is because of the area that I live in, we are in a smaller community & as such all of us are a single of the only Heating plus Air Conditioning dealers around & because there is also a colder area everybody is consistently rushing to us while in the Winter months to get all the heating products I need, to resolve so multiple people buying our products, it is not too unrespected for us to run out.
I’m trying to order more of the heating products from the dealer, however even they are having shortages. As much as I do not prefer to do it, because there is a shortage on the heating products all of us had to raise the prices. I thought that because all of us had raised the prices that all of us would end up losing some business, & while all of us really did lose a few clients all of us still have people that were rushing to the store to buy our Heating & cooling products & this was surprising to us. It was a pleasant surprise certainly though because it showed just how well our supplier was doing, thankfully now that all of us had a little extra money all of us were able to do better at keeping the shelf stock with all the Heating plus Air Conditioning products that the people in the community needed.
