Due to the high cost of freight, we have amended our backorder policy. The amended policy enables us to keep shipping charges low. When a Backordered item is included in your order, we will hold shipment of the entire order, or the portions of your order shipping from the affected warehouse, until all items are available. We will notify you if this is expected to be an extended period of time and will also provide other options for substitutes when available. You may opt for a refund if you do not feel the timeframe will meet your needs.
