To justify the lower wholesale prices it is usually expected that business customers buy larger amounts from us. If not in each purchase; over the period of a year. Few manufacturers survive by offering wholesale prices for retail quantities.
To achieve our best economies of scale in manufacturing we need orders to be over 250 metres (275 yards) in length. Savings we make on orders over 250 metres allow us to be much more competitive and we can pass much of these savings on to our customers. Orders for a fabric under 250 metres (275 yards) length is considered a small order, so if you want the best prices please try to keep orders above 250 metres.
Remember cutting to exact lengths costs extra, so you can save if you say you will take full rolls, thus avoiding cutting and secondary rolling costs. John England do understand that not all our customers require a full roll, instead want exact lengths of fabric for a specific job, so to help we do have price breaks for quantities under 250 metres in length. Under 250 metres we have various price breaks. The next best prices are lengths 150m-250m, 100m-149m, 50m-99m, 13m-49m, 6m-12m, and under 5m. Although purchases under 5m are not recommended.
Offering fabrics in shorter lengths, at realistic prices, is one of John England’s unique services. However, the best way to get John England linens at the best prices is to buy items in bulk.
