Casa Cuevas has informed its retailers and brokers that it will be implementing a price increase on its catalog during the first week of February.
It’s an increase of 4 percent across the board, which Luis Cuevas Jr. told halfwheel was necessary to simply keep up with increasing costs in several areas. “The price of everything has gone up,” he said.
In an e-mail to retailers, the company said that the need for an increase was attributable to increasing costs for labor, shipping product to the company’s warehouse, as well as the cost of natural tobacco.
He did add that the company is implementing the increase in February in order to give retailers who attend the 2022 Tobacco Plus Expo in late January an opportunity to put in orders before the increase goes into effect. The company also noted that this is the first time since 2019 that it has made the decision to raise prices across the board.
