Do not order your 2021 school uniforms before June 2020. If you do, you’ll end up paying too much given current exchange rates for the Aussie dollar.
The Australian economy, like all global economies, has been significantly impacted by COVID-19, but economists are tipping the Australian dollar will start to recover in June.
It’s expected that pricing will be even more favourable for those who are able to hold out on placing orders a few months longer into July, August and even September.
And there’s no need to worry – if you place your order with Red Oak Uniforms, your school uniforms will still arrive on time!
In this blog, we explain three (3) reasons why it’s worth waiting to place your 2021 order with Red Oak Uniforms.
3 Reasons You Should Wait to Order 2021 School Uniforms
1. You’ll pay too much if you order your 2021 uniforms now.
Suppliers in Australia, including Red Oak Uniforms, buy from overseas factories in US Dollars.
That means if you buy when the Australian Dollar is lower, it could end up adding thousands to your school uniform order.
For example – if a polo costs US$10 to manufacture, the difference between $0.60 vs $0.70 AUD to the US dollar can change the unit cost by as much a $2.36 per polo.
2. You will still get your orders on time if you order with Red Oak Uniforms.
You don’t need to order 10 months in advance thanks to Red Oak Uniform’s efficient systems and impressive factory partners.
If your order is placed before August 2020 you will receive it with plenty of time to spare before the 2021 school year starts.
3. You won’t be charged deposits.
We’re anticipating COVID-19 may force some Australian uniform suppliers to close their doors.
For others, they may start trying to introduce mandatory deposits for school uniform orders.
You can be confident that Red Oak Uniforms will be in a better position – and we GUARANTEE we won’t ask schools to pay a deposit to secure their uniform orders.
Don’t Order School Uniforms Before June 2020
If you want to be prepared for the 2021 school year, you can still order your uniforms up until September 2020 and still have them in time. Do NOT order before June 2020 because you’ll simply be paying too much.
