    Just wondering what everyone is hearing about pellet prices in the Maritimes this fall? I heard that prices could be going down about $.50 per bag on the Eastern Embers. Does anyone know on any new brands coming on line?

    My local supplier in Nova Scotia says he expects the same pattern as last year: he will price at $6.50 per bag, and then see if the market will sustain that price. He tells me that last year, the price dropped quickly to $5.99 where it stayed for most of the winter.

    Now that Piercy's (sold Eastern Embers in 2009-2010) has been bought out by Rona (sold LGs in 2009-2010), I don't expect we will see LGs here any time soon, I'm sorry to say.

    Spoke to my supplier today. He said there is a new company ready to supply pellets this fall. He also said he expects Shaw to drop
    In price by 50 cents to a dollar.

    Hi Kerr34,
    This is the info that I am getting as well. I would be reluctant to try a brand new product by buying 3-ton of them. Have tried other brands but the shaws are still the best.

    New plant opened in St. Quentin(New Brunswick) with two pelletizers and possibly a third. Reports say that they have been trying to sway the government to promote more pellet burning with face to face meetings and want to use them locally rather than send them all overseas. A no-brainer to me,rather than trying to spent billions on new power plants.

    Time is getting close. Last year I bought my pellets in September and started burning in October. Anyone with any information on pricing and product available in the Maritimes I would love for you to share your information.

    seems I recall the group savoie was using a different technology(or something different) for making pellets...supposedly better. Might be worth it to try a bag. The tru-burn deal I mentioned earlier was tax included and was in todays paper as well.

    I just picked up my 4 tonnes today from Maritime Fireplaces in Moncton. 5.49 per bag (only this weekend then back up to 5.99), but had to pick them up as their delivery charge is crazy: I got dinged for $120.00 last year.

    I didn't shop around, So I just assumed I wouldn't get a better deal based on what was going on a couple of months ago.

    Next step: get someone into inspect and clean my EF3. I did it myself last year, but would like a pro to do it this time around just for a little piece of mind.

    Yes I saw that deal as well in the paper and I don't recall them using that much advertisment space before. I have a feeeling that pellets will be competitive this season and some good deals will be had earlier this year rather than sitting and taking store floor space for so long.

    I got a pallet of Lignetics that were last years stock at Canadian Tire on the East Side of Saint John about a month ago for $5.49 a bag. I wasn't really looking to buy any that early but with that price and even though they were older stock Lignetics they still beat all other brands....it was the only pallet they had left so I'm not sure if they have any in yet or what brand they are now carrying?

    If they are the green lettering bags, do they say "hardwood" or "hardwood blend" on the front?

    I live in Western Canada, and Canadian Tire and Home Hardware do sell pellets...but being that Vanderwell Contractors (Spruce Pointe Producer) is right in town....and only 4.20/bag... Can't bring myself to pay almost $2.00 more /bag for an inferior pellet. This winter though I'll grab a bag or 2 of whatever they are selling and try them out.

    Kent has Comfy Cozy on for 5.49/bag and $40 to deliver as much as you want (offload pallets to your driveway).
    Home Depot is 5.99 for Eastern Embers with $40 delivery but the driver is now carrying a pallet jack to put the pallets anywhere you want in your garage...
    I asked HD if they would meet Kent's price and they said "yes" ...so I've ordered 3 pallets (70 bags per pallet) and they will go right into the garage...no lifting......sweet!!!
