How is Pioneer handling tariff increases?

October 1, 2019

Dear Pioneer Customers,

The first of our basket containers for the 2019 Gift Basket Season began arriving in September with an additional 15% tariff imposed. We are now being charged a 30.8% tariff on baskets on each container as it clears customs.

Therefore, as of October 1, 2019, we will be adding a 7.5% tariff surcharge on all baskets. This surcharge is based on the time of shipment (any time after October 1, 2019), regardless of the date the order was placed.

This is subject to change if the tariffs change again.
