If an item you want to purchase is temporarily out of stock, you may still be able to backorder it. This allows you to reserve the next available stock, so when we receive it, we ship it to you. Backordered item(s) usually ship within four to five weeks – we’ll send you an email when your order is on its way.

If an item you want to purchase hasn’t yet arrived in stores you can pre-order it. Items available for pre-order should ship within four to five weeks but this time frame can vary widely based on the item and vendor.

You also have the choice of whether or not to save credit card information with us in your Online Account.

We sometimes use other companies (third-party service providers) to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders and delivering packages. They need access to some personal information in order to perform their duties but may not use this information for other purposes.
