Navigating These Challenging Times Together

Steps We're Taking:
Our offices are all currently set up to work from home to help stop the spread of COVID-19. At our warehouse and shops, we have increased efforts to disinfect high-touch and high-trafficked areas throughout the day and increased daily cleaning routines. We are also making sure all employees have up-to-date information on how to stay healthy and what preventative measures should be taken and the ability to stay home if they are feeling unwell.

You may experience delays in shipping as we are taking the necessary precautions to protect you and our team. We are still working hard to get in-stock items shipped within 24 hours. Few items may temporarily have longer fulfillment times.

Customer Service:
Our customer service team is working hard to help all customers as quickly as possible. Due to technical difficulties and a higher volume of calls you may experience interruptions.
