We normally ship Monday through Friday but due to temperatures varying across the country we may choose to not ship over the weekend in order to ensure premium quality upon arrival. For this reason we cannot guarantee Monday deliveries. If you need Saturday or Sunday delivery please contact us so we can discuss options it is generally expensive and not available in all areas.
Most orders placed before 12:00 PM "Afternoon" (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday will be processed that same day. If your order is placed after 12:00 PM "Afternoon" (Eastern Time), please allow 24 hours for processing. Some items may require additional processing time for being seasonal, made to order or out of stock.
Our shipping prices are based on weight and distance. Just place an item in your cart and then enter your zip code to compute the shipping charges you can always remove the item. The more items you have the cheaper the overall shipping cost is.
