Thanks for the reply Michael. Good perspective from a retail view. I certainly can see that issue as being difficult.

I really don’t know a ton about apples to apples with Baileigh vs the competition, but I believe they are manufacturing over seas just as Grizzly and others.

I know from our shops perspective, we retail custom cabinetry out to our customers. I believe I am currently at a competitive price point while not being the cheapest out there, but not the most expensive either. I sure would love to charge 1/3 more than I currently do, but at what sacrifice would I do so. I suspect no customer would hire us if we decided to price ourselves 1/3 higher than the competition, who actually can build as good as we can.

While pricing 1/3 more than my competition would certainly be enticing since it would mean more profit, I probably would just go out of business, plus I do not want to do what I consider would be gouging my customers.
