Heads up—our prices will be changing soon.
You may have noticed that many of your favorite brands have recently needed to increase prices for their products or services. The echoes of the pandemic can be felt across virtually every industry worldwide, with small, independent companies taking the hardest hits. These price adjustments are an unfortunate necessity to ensure the continued survival of small businesses amid unprecedented economic difficulty.
Effective October 1, Sea Star Beachwear’s core Classic line—Beachcomber Espadrilles, Mariner Slip-Ons, and Seafarer Slingbacks—will be priced at $125. Harbourside Mules will be priced at $85, and Cabana Slides will be priced at $65.
While we’re disappointed by this turn of events, it’s a measure to guarantee that Sea Star Beachwear lovers can continue enjoy the same high quality, durability, and innovation they’ve come to expect from our line. Our team is committed to transparency through the price adjustment process, and to help buyers navigate this change, we’ve drafted a Q&A list covering essential info about the upcoming increase. If you have any additional questions or concerns, we’re here for you—contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll respond promptly with assistance.
