In View of the current Health Crisis and the Shortage of Personal Protection items. We thought it would be helpful to explain how we have priced this and other emergency items. We will try to explain below that we are NOT "profiteers" or "price gouging." A) We have been in this business for 40+ years. B) We have purchased this product and other products at very inflated prices due to demand and we are NOT even making our standard margins. Our intention is to make these essential items available for our Loyal Customers and the Frontline Emergency Worker.
