Shipping & Deliveries

All continental USA shipments are shipped via USPS or UPS ground our choice. To try and keep the cost of shipping to our customers as low as we can we try and ship most everything via USPS especially low dollar/low weight orders since UPS is normally 2X as expensive, unless the item is extremely fragile. Shipments to Alaska & Hawaii are shipped via USPS. P.O. Boxes are acceptable on all shipments.

In-store pick up is available. PLEASE NOTE: You will need a copy of your confirmation e-mail and the original credit card used to place the order at the time of store pick up.
