Update Regarding Morning Sun Books

Posted by Lee on 7/7/2023
We have several updates regarding the pricing and availability of Morning Sun books.

Morning Sun has announced that they are relocating from the fulfillment house they were using in New Jersey to a new one in Chicago as the old location is closing at the end of the month. The immediate impact is that the transition is affecting the availability of titles. The Chicago facility is not currently operational and the New Jersey facility is overwhelmed trying to move the inventory and simultaneously wind down their business. As a result some titles are not available when we go to order. Unfortunately we do not know what we are getting until the order shows up. Please understand that there may be delays in shipping due to these issues.

The other more long term issue is that Morning Sun Books decided to make major changes to their pricing for dealers. For reasons they have not chosen to share with anyone, they significantly increased the dealer price of their books. As a result we have no choice except to change our prices for their books.

The following pricing changes are effective July 24, 2023:
$45.00 retail titles were $40.50 will now sell for $43.75
$50.00 retail titles were $40.50 will now sell for $48.75
$55.00 retail titles were $44.50 will now sell for $53.75
$60.00 retail titles were $48.75 will now sell for $58.75
$70.00 retail titles were $58.75 will now sell for $68.75

Softcovers were $36.75 will now sell for $38.75

Unfortunately efforts to discuss this issue with the company, by us as well as other dealers and distributors, have all fallen on deaf ears. They have made their decision and are not willing to listen or discuss the issue any further. This price change will also apply to any pre-orders placed for the September to December books. Unfortunately we are simply not able to honor those prices. If you have any of the books on order and wish to cancel your pre-order please let us know. We fully understand that you may no longer want the books at those prices. Just send us an email or give us a call and we will cancel your order. We apologize for this situation but at the time we sent out the announcement of the fall titles, Morning Sun had not informed us of their decision to change the dealer price of their books.

The other important change is that Morning Sun titles will now become special order items. Many of their older titles are slow sellers and we simply can not afford to sit on inventory with razor thin margins. We expect that we will be placing orders with Morning Sun every week, but please allow 2 weeks for your order to be shipped. This change will not affect any other publishers.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter. If you have questions or concerns please contact us and we will do our best to answer them.
