It's almost November and last year that meant a price increase on Chanel bags. Internet rumours are flying that prices are going up 20% on November 1st. A price increase that steep in an unsure retail economy seems drastic. Not sure what to believe we made a few calls asking Chanel sales associates if there was going to be a November 1st price increase.
Independent Chanel boutiques are all in agreement that no price changes are occurring any time soon. Saks and Bergdorf sales women seem sure that price increases are imminent. Are the department stores trying the pressure sell or are they just brave enough to brake the news? We think iit's the potential sale that is pushing the department store sales people but what do yout think?

No, that's not true at all. No way!

We haven't been informed of anything. We usually don't get information far in advance but for Nov. 1st I believe we would know about it.

No. Not that we know of.
We don't know exactly when, but yeah. Probably everything is going up. Cruise is coming in and handbags are $3000 or $4000. The last time they went up $1000. For the last increase (last year) a bag was $1895 and now it's $2495. Usually "they" come in the morning and just change the prices.

I think it is true. I honestly don't know how much or which styles. I think the caviar classic. I think the caviar jumbo classic is going to be $2825, an extra $175. "They" just come down with the new tickets and change them.
None of ours. We haven't gotten any word of that. Usually it's every two years but no word on that.
