There are several options available to ensure your order is fulfilled in a timely manner. Some items are delivered to you directly from your local store using Local Delivery. Others may come from one of our warehouses or vendors using National Delivery. The amount of time your order will be in transit varies according to item location, size, weight, and shipping/delivery type selected during checkout.
