Bishop's Storehouse Price Increase
I would just like to start off with: there's no need to panic.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has implemented a Bishop's Storehouse price increase effective now.
You can see the price list here.
Now, these are somewhat large price increases. But as I said before, there is no need to panic. We can do this!!
Here's an overview of the kinds of changes you'll see:
Wheat is now $11.45 (up from $7.65) for a 25# bag.
There has been a price increase of 19.1% in the past 22 months on the 20 most-purchased foods. That's almost a 1% increase per month. No panicking, however prices are just going to go up from here. If you have been putting off heeding the call to food storage, now would be a good time to stop.
We'll see the biggest increase in:
Sugar @ 26%
Regular Oats @ 29.6%
White Wheat @ 31.9%
Macaroni @ 36.4%
Potato Flakes @ 39.2%
Rice and beans increased very little during the same period.
You guys are great!! Keep your prayers up and your tempers down. We have known for a long times that the last days are here. The time for rationalization has passed. The time to ignore the Prophet's warning voice has come and gone. We must band together and find strength in our relationship with our Father in Heaven through prayer. Much of the world is in trouble. It will reach our shores one day. We know this. Price increases like this will become ever-more frequent as we grow nearer and nearer to the Lord's Second Coming.
Time to get busy!!
