Re: Ceritas - Save the date 8/8/19

Yes, email arrived today. I think they stagger the releases so if you're newer on the list it could hit you next week(?). Not sure though. It's not newer. I've been purchasing Ceritas for 5 or 6 years. I think it's on volume. offers go out to the larger buyers first. BTW what was the price for that.
