Shipping & Terms

Order Fulfillment

Retail orders will be processed within two business days; you will receive a notification, with tracking details, once your order has been shipped. All orders are sent from our Watertown, MA warehouse.

Please note, USPS is still experiencing occasional shipping delays due to the pandemic, which unfortunately is out of our control. Packages may take extra time to reach their destination; only USPS will be able to offer more details about status or delivery date, or to reschedule a delivery. As per USPS, delivery adjustments can only be made by the recipient, not by the shipper.

We much appreciate your patience and understanding. If you have additional questions about your order or fulfillment times, please contact
