  • How long does it take to process a Will Call order?

    We ask customers to allow 3 hours for will call orders due to our order processing system and the automation and layout of our distribution center. On average, we process 1,500 orders a day. Peak days are over 2,000. To remain efficient and keep prices low, will call orders are inducted into our system along with all other orders. Orders have to process through credit approval and then are printed and released to our Distribution System. Once released, they travel along our automated conveyor system. Depending on where the items are located throughout our 135,000 square foot facility, the tote could make stops in up to 10 areas where order pickers are selecting product, putting the product into the tote, and then confirming to the system the action that was taken. We have over 5,000 feet of conveyor and stock over 30,000 products.

  • What should I do if product is damaged in shipment?

    Our merchandise is carefully packed for shipment by our distribution centers, or is prepackaged by our suppliers in compliance with carrier requirements. However we realize that shipment damage may occur in spite of these precautions.

    Please check all shipments when they are delivered for shortages or external signs of damage. If you find a problem, notify the driver of all the items involved. If containers in your shipment appear damaged, you should immediately unpack them and inspect the contents. If there is damage, have the driver write a detailed description of the damage on both copies of the freight bill, and have the driver sign the freight bill. Even if the containers in your shipment appear undamaged, you should still unpack and examine them as soon as possible. If you find concealed loss or damage, immediately report it to the carrier. Please do not dispose of any containers or packing material before any carrier inspection.

    Please note: You must file any claims, with supporting documentation, in accordance with the terms of the carrier responsible for your delivery. Failure to do so will result in the carrier refusing to honor the claim. For your protection, our billings include insurance for damage or loss in transit.
