They definitely found their ceiling with me. I've been buying NIB Sterns for years and can't see myself doing it anymore at these new prices. First world problems.....
I keep reading that inflation and costs rising on all products/labor is the reason Stern keeps raising prices. My question is, will the prices fall when everything else does? I don't think so, but what do I know......
Quoted from BMore-Pinball:
Sorry, you can't equate a homebrew build with a business like Stern who employees 100's of people, needs to buy supplies for 1,000's of builds at a time, has overhead, insurance, .. and other business expenses.
Glad the plumbing business has not been impacted - every other business owner I speak with has experienced increases in their costs.
Totally agree, but will they lower the machine cost when the supply chain catches up and costs lower? I doubt it.
