  • How do I find the items I'm looking for?

    You can browse through the site or use the search option. The search option is located at the top of every page of our online catalog. When you find an item that interests you, click the name of the item to see its detail page.

  • What if I want an item, but it is on backorder?

    We strive to maintain adequate stock levels. However, occasionally we may run out of or run low on a particular item. Inventory quantities and expected stock arrival dates for each item are shown on the detailed product pages. If you find an item that doesn't have adequate inventory on hand you now have options:

    • Reduce your quantity to the remaining amount available on hand
    • Check out the other related items in this category
    • Use the Advanced Search feature in your store header (magnifying glass icon) to find items with the desired quantities on hand
    • Add your email to the Stock Notice and we'll notify you when more inventory becomes available
    • Contact your dedicated Customer Service Rep for additional options/suggestions

    If you take advantage of using the Stock Notice feature, we would like to inform you that it does not commit you to a purchase. Should you decide you still have a need for the branded merchandise when it arrives, you would create a separate order transaction submitting payment for product and freight.
