Welcome to the

The Easter break was a typical one it seems. Far too much chocolate - and the weather changed for the worse (in the UK) improving just in time for the return to work as usual.

Oh well, at least the roads are quieter due to the school holidays… Or the high cost of fuel. Take your pick. Whichever it is, it won't last, the children will be back at school next week and we'll no doubt get used to fuel costing around £1.50 a litre (that's a whopping great £6.75 a gallon!)

So how does the high cost of fuel affect you? Obviously if it costs you more to get to the customer, you have to charge more, don't you? Or is that too dangerous for business these days? Have the higher fuel costs impacted on the way you work? Or do you just absorb the cost and try and find other ways to increase your income? Are fewer people visiting showrooms and opting to shop online instead? Or are they just not shopping at all?

If you have a view on that and would like to share it, do let us know. 

If you enjoy reading KBZine so do others! If you have company news, stock clearances, distributor or product information, make sure you share it with our readers. Wherever on the globe you’re based yourself, we want to hear from you!
