WELCOME TO THE HMS COURAGEOUS ASSOCIATION ONLINE SHOP
Unfortunately, as with so many organisations and businesses, we have noticed a very sharp increase in costs. For us this is particularly noticeable with regard to shipping costs which have increased by a large margin. We have done our best to move away from Royal Mail and Parcel Post, who have proven to be more expensive than others and we are now using carriers such as Evri who provide a slightly cheaper service. However, the costs still represent an increase over our previous shipping expenses.
Unfortunately this means that we must review our shipping costs and with that review will come rises in prices. We will do our best to keep any increases to a minimum but it is, we are afraid, inevitable, that shipping costs will increase. We will not be increasing the base price of the goods themselves unless we have to restock and we are charged more ourselves. Currently only the shipping prices will increase. We are sorry to do this but needs must and we would rightly be sacked if we made a loss in the shop.
As we are a small organisation, out of choice we do not hold high stock levels of many items, particularly clothing. Due to the variety of sizes and colours offered we have found it more economical, and certainly financially safer, to buy and embroider/print to order. This means that some items will take a little longer than we would ideally wish for orders to be fulfilled but please be assured, your order will be with you as soon as possible. If you would like an update on the status of your order please e mail Steve Crowley
