    Hi,

    I've been enquiring for a CDC in London and one of them has come back with prices that don't match the sticky, ie I've been quoted £2 per item or £40 per box of 21. Have prices gone up since December? :eek:

    Many thanks.

    That is right, we can charge whatever we want, however £40 sounds expensive! Personally I sell at £36 per box or £1.75 per item - 25p less per item or 12 1/2% less per item!

    I would call around & see if there is anyone else locally that does it closer to the rrp.

    That's what I thought, Nicky... I know CDCs can charge what they want, but that looks a bit like too much to me, considering what the RRPs are.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'll keep looking...

    I used to pay £40 with my old cdc, now i pay £35 with my new cdc and she posts it down for me when i am not near to her still only costs me £39 with postage lol.....

    think some cdc's take advantage..

    i would find another one personally :)

    at my cdc training i was told price rise was in july (end of financial year) so its not that... BUT i was also told that in london the cdc's overheads are a lot higher than say those in midlands and up north hence the higher prices i guess!

    My CDC charges charges reasonable prices:

    £1.65 for shakes/soups
    £1.85 per tetra block
    £1.90 for bars [never bought any of them, so not 100% sure if that last price is right...]

    I've found a new CDC who charges £35 for the standard 21 packs. She also seems to take extra care of her clients - was worried that 1 hour for the initial meeting wouldn't be enough, only does 1-1s, and apparently gives you some motivational/mind changing exercises to do daily. Seems to be just what I wanted... :) I'll find out a bit more on Thursday.

    Yvonne is right, as that's still the rrp. The annual price rise is due in July.

    As has been said, a cdc is self-employed, and can technically charge whatever they like. Having said that, London cdcs pay exactly the same price as cdcs everywhere, so there's no reason why they should charge more simply because they're in London!
