School of Expenditure: Leap in Product Prices Israel today


The cost of living also reaches the classrooms: increases in the prices of bags and notebooks • The reasons: price increases in the field of paper and shipping • Importers are desperate: "We have no choice"

Most parents in the country these days are preoccupied with the exorbitant costs of the great freedom, but on the horizon there are also decrees in the area of ​​back to school.

The cost of living, the various price increases in the paper field and the shipping costs have led to a jump in the prices of many products in this field.

According to Amit Shabtai, Kravitz's trade director, "The issue of prices is more important today than ever. The price of paper has risen by 50%, and we are making sure that it does not roll out to consumers thanks to our home brand. Kravitz decides not to raise.As for the brands, the companies of the orthopedic bags have asked for a price increase of 10% -7%, and in the bags of some of them we have increased the prices in part.

"There are things where we have to raise a drop. Where we had to make adjustments at a minimum - we did, as in brands. In the end, it's an increase of 4% -3%, compared to 25%."

Moshe Gantz, owner of Kal Gev, told Israel Today: "We have increased the prices of our bags by 3% -2%. These are orthopedic bags for the lower grades and backpacks for students in general."

Gantz explains that there are several reasons for this: "It starts with the fact that wages have risen, fuel has risen, council taxes have risen and electricity has risen. In the maintenance of the business everything has risen. "NIS to NIS 3.5 - that alone is an increase of more than 10%. Another reason is that transportation is expensive."

Pelpot also raises prices by a few percent.

According to Einat Baruch, the company's vice president: "The Corona crises in the last two years have raised transport and transportation prices by tens of percent, which will probably increase the cost of returning products to school.

As a leading company, we decided to absorb most of the costs and not pass them on to consumers. "
