Free shipping

Receive free economy shipping on orders $25 or more. Free shipping applies to individual orders shipped within the continental United States via our choice of standard UPS or US Post Office shipping (typically 5 to 10 days, but your time may vary) and totaling $25 or more before applicable tax and after any eligible discounts. Orders more than $250 will ship free via UPS Ground (1 to 5 days) throughout the entire United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. "Free shipping" must be selected as the shipping method at checkout. Expedited shipping available at actual cost.

When will my order ship?

Orders placed Monday-Friday online by 4 p.m. central time typically ship the same day (on in-stock items, which includes 99% of our inventory). Orders placed after 4 p.m. on weekdays, as well as anytime on weekends, ship the following business day. When a holiday falls on a weekday, orders ship the following business day.

Shipping options and costs

Free economy shipping is available on orders $25 or more within the continental USA. (See free shipping info above.) For orders less than $25 and for those who want to select their shipping method, shipping options include UPS or US Post Office, with many available at flat rates. For time sensitive shipments in the USA, we recommend UPS as your shipping choice. UPS offers guaranteed service and package tracking; the US Post Office does not. Delays with the US Post Office deliveries can and do happen. Shipping options, times in transit and costs are displayed below. Please note that US Post Office transit times are estimates only. Additionally, UPS operates on a Monday through Friday schedule. Orders placed after 4 p.m. central time do not ship until the following business day.

International shipping

For information on international shipping (outside the United States), please see International Orders.

Blind shipping

Orders are automatically shipped with a business card, return label with our business name and address, and invoice, which includes product prices. If an order is at least $100, we will blind ship so that the package does not include an invoice, business card or return label with our business name and address. You must write "blind ship" in the order comments section at checkout or our company information automatically will be included in the shipment. We do not blind ship orders less than $100.

Gifts

Orders are automatically shipped with an invoice and product prices. If an order is a gift, please write "gift, do not include invoice" in the comments section at checkout and we will remove the invoice.

Local pickup

Orders can be picked up from our Mundelein, IL warehouse location. Simply select the "Pickup in Mundelein, IL" option at checkout and we will e-mail you when your order is ready. Orders may be picked up Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm central time at 525 Morris Avenue, Mundelein, IL 60060. Please note that our location is a warehouse, not a retail store, and customers may not browse inventory within the warehouse.
