COVID-19 SHIPPING DISRUPTIONS

Due to Covid-19 disruptions our current order processing times are between 3-5 days before shipping. 

We are committed to keeping our customers informed of COVID-19 updates as we are informed by our partners and carrier network.

Please note, as carrier services are restored to various destinations, delays will still be evident as in-country restrictions remain in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and carrier service level guarantees remain suspended. Further, if carriers are unable to successfully complete a delivery as a result of business closures, items may be returned back to the origin warehouse.
