Default Tobacco prices going up

We have all heard about the tax increases for April, right. Well some of the manufacturers have decided to jump on the FU band wagon as well, meaning they think this is the perfect time to jack anyone they can. We could expect no less from SB as they have raised wholesale prices but not retail, so you do the math, our wholesale prices go up in addition to taxes going up but the price is supposed to remain to you guys $19.99, and anyone online is able to bring the price lower due to the nature of competition. Well, I for one will be clearing out all of my SB inventory as planned, however today I got news that Nakhla is doing the same thing. In addition to taxes raising our prices, now Nakhla has decided to increase as well. Get ready for $10 a box Nakhla folks.
Sorry folks, taxes are one thing and raising prices is another. If the tobacco companies would raise their prices at a time other than when we are getting a tax raise it would ease the pain, don't you think?

mh ... prices for the american shisha (like starbuzz and fantasia) here will go up as well.
$10 for a 250g pack of nakhla is still cheap, compared to european prices (250g here is about $19)

Maybe now Nakhla can put Premium on their boxes too. LOL Nakhla has been worth $10 or more a 250 for a long time now.

well initially i was saying you are owned cause starbuzz is going up, but u already pay ridiculous amounts for it...so its probably only a small 5% increase on top of everything...so in actuality it doesn't effect you.

I am more owned because i have to deal with a 200% increase in my nakhla.

Best idea i've heard yet. Seriously, I know you don't like Nakhla so you should start smoking Prince or get some of that great stuff they sell in the south.

I think that everyone will jack up the wholesale prices to reflect the higher costs that the manufacturers have as a result of the tax rise. As a result, the consumers get a compounded price increase. The real problem is that these price increases will reduce consumption and revenue meaning that no one will get health care. More change we can believe in!

is there any good nakhla in egypt?
a friend, who is in egypt for some months told me, that the "original" nakhla for egyptian smokers is much better, than the export nakhla for europe, the USA or the nakhla aviable on the basars for tourists

250g of AF is $5.5

1Kg is about $20

I could hook your buddy up with places that sell tobacco and hookah stuff cheap, and have lots of customers and traffic (so you guarantee they always sell out and get fresh stocks, unlike stores that have very few customers who usually have old stuff)
