COVID - 19 SHIPPING UPDATE
An Update from West of Main
As a small business, we want to thank you all for your continued support. We’ve all experienced the weight of Covid-19 in our lives and our business is no exception. With the volume of orders experienced industry wide, many supply chain and shipping discrepancies have arisen. We’re facing extended shipping timelines on many of our products. The process from when your order is placed to when it is shipped is a lengthy system and we hope that shedding light on it will bring understanding and patience.
Carrier shipping constraints we’re all facing in this industry has extended shipping timelines on many items of up to 14-18 business days. Additionally, since we do not warehouse all our items, pre-order items are also subject to further processing lead times, so please refer to the individual product pages for the most up-to-date information. The dates presented for those products are estimates only, and are subject to change as we encounter delays. Some pre-order items have additional processing lead times once the items become in stock, and may not ship immediately.
After your order is processed, you will receive an email containing a tracking number and confirming that your package has been sent. Once items are in transit, they may take an additional 2-4 weeks for the item to make it to your home. After the item reaches your local area, the delivery company will contact you via phone, email or text to schedule a delivery date and time that works for you. Some items will require a signature to complete the delivery.
If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to reach out. Our customer support team is working hard to respond to all inquiries as quickly as possible. We are constantly in search of new solutions and to create a better customer experience moving forward. We will continue to work to answer your inquiries, and work to get your order to you as soon as possible. Thank you again for supporting West of Main and being a part of our growing community.
