- Why should I bother to register?Once you register, you'll be able to access several useful features of the web store. Registered shoppers are able to:
- Retrieve up-to-date order status information
- Get real-time package tracking information after your order has been placed
- Maintain a Wish List
- Enter multiple shipping addresses in your personal Address Book
- Edit your customer information and log-in password
- Forgot Password?If you registered on the site but can't remember your password, just click on the "Forgot Your Password?" link on the Account Login page. Then enter your email address and submit. You should shortly receive an email containing a link to the site where you can create a new password. If you do NOT receive an email, this could mean that you never actually registered on the site. (You may have instead placed your order as a "Guest" rather than a Registered user.) If that's the case, just go ahead and create an account by registering with your email address and create a password. It is also possible that the reset email has been blocked by your email provider. Please check your Spam/Junk folder just in case.
- What's a Wish List?The Wish List is a feature available to all registered users. If you place products into your Wish List, they remain there for either purchase or deletion at a later time. When you return to the site, just Log In and your Wish List items will still be there. To add items to your Wish List, locate the product you are interested in, go to its Product Description Page, and click on the "Add to Wish List" button.
- Can I repeat a previous order?Sure. It's easy as long as you are a registered user (so remember to register during checkout). Begin by logging in to your account (click on the person icon in the top right corner), then follow these steps: Click on ORDERS from the dropdown menu. Click the order number of the order you wish to repeat. Click the box to the left of the order. Click the REORDER button at the bottom of the page. View your shopping cart to make any further changes.
- Can I update my address, username, or password?If you have registered on-line, you can edit your information yourself. Just click on "My Account" in the top right corner. Then click on "Account Settings." To reset your password, you can also click "forgot password" when you attempt to login.

SHIPPING & RETURNS
- When can I expect to receive my order?Most items are shipped from our warehouse in Natick, Massachusetts, and, in most cases, are packed and shipped the day after your order has been placed (Monday-Friday only, excluding holidays). Depending on your location, you can expect delivery within 2 - 6 business days after the day of shipping, if you have selected standard ground shipping. Registered shoppers can get real-time package tracking information by logging in and clicking on "Order Status." If one of your items is out-of-stock, we will contact you within a day or two so that you'll have the opportunity to tell us what you'd like us to do. Some of our items are shipped from other locations, and may take several weeks to arrive. We've indicated when this is the case within the product description. Call us at 800-299-3770 if you'd like more information about a particular item. More on shipping & handling...
- Can I have my order shipped to more than one location?Yes and no. When placing an order on our web site, you cannot split one order to two or more shipping addresses. Just place separate orders for each shipping location. Alternatively, you can place a single order with multiple shipping addresses by phone or fax.
- Do you ship to locations outside the USA?Yes. Read more about International Shipping.
- How much will shipping cost?When we ship your order using regular Ground shipping, we pass along the exact charge that our carrier charges us. The shipping charges are based on the weight of your entire order and the destination, not on the purchase price. You can find out what your shipping charges will be once you've entered all of your selected items into your shopping cart. In the Shopping Cart, click on the Estimate Shipping Cost button. After you enter your zip code, the web store will estimate your shipping charges. Small purchases (order totals under $25) can often have disproportionately high shipping costs. More on shipping & handling...
- What if I need something IMMEDIATELY?We can arrange to have in-stock items shipped to you the very next morning, if we hear from you by 12 PM (noon) EST (Mon-Thurs.) or 10 AM EST on Friday. It's best to place these orders by phone during business hours, if possible, so that we may expedite it personally. You can choose one of these delivery options: Overnight by 10:30 am to most addresses, 2-day, and 3-day by end of business day. Expedited delivery options apply only to customers in mainland U.S. More on shipping & handling...
