TARIFF NOTICE ON DRAPERY HARDWARE

There are important changes to our drapery hardware fees that we would like to inform you about. Some KDR drapery hardware vendors have been passing on tariff charges on certain drapery hardware items. These tariffs can be as much as 12%, which will show up as an additional line item charge on your invoice.

We suggest checking with a KDR Sales Associate prior to quoting any prices for these vendors.
