Our offices are currently closed due to flooding in the St. Louis, MO area. Thankfully, our offices are not directly flooded, however, all immediate areas are flooded and as a result, all roads are closed and making it difficult for our staff as well as UPS to effectively get your orders out to you.
We have a limited staff available for emergency situations, including processing emergency orders from an alternate warehouse. If you have an emergency, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your message will be routed to our staff who will do their very best to accommodate your situation.
Also, please note all orders previously scheduled to ship 12/30 or 12/31 have been addressed.
We fully anticipate the flooding will be resolved by Monday, January 4th, and orders as well as support will be back to the normal routine.
Thank you for your patience. We wish you a Happy New Year!
