If you're in the UK then the current offers on Ilford Multigrade from Nova and Secondhand Darkroom Supplies and probably other retailers make Ilford products a pretty good bargain.

The second last thing exporters like Ilford need is the current trend in the /$ exchange rate or any other /other currency rate in which it has a market. The last and fatal thing it needs is selling in the U.S. or other countries at a loss.
