Terms of Service

Sales Tax:

New York’s retail sales tax is a destination tax. The point of delivery or the point at which possession is transferred by the seller to the purchaser determines the rate of tax to be collected. Sales delivered outside New York State are exempt from tax.


The customer is responsible for all shipping costs unless otherwise stated. We utilize USPS and UPS for our shipping needs. All orders are processed within 2 business days. Orders received before 12pm Mon – Fri usually ship the same day. Orders received on the weekend are dispatched on Mondays.. While we do everything we can to ensure a timely delivery, unfortunately we can’t guarantee that your package will arrive in any particular time frame. Sadly, there are instances where UPS or USPS will be late due to unforeseen events such as weather in transit, mechanical issues or pandemic related causes.  If your package has been delayed beyond its scheduled delivery time, we will not be able to refund any shipping charges.  Please be aware that UPS and USPS do not have any guarantees as to the delivery time of their ground service.

Please note that some items may come from multiple stores or our manufactures bases on inventory.  Please allow more than 1 package in some cases. We will try to inform during shipping however it is not guaranteed and will work hard to communicate with you.  Tracking numbers are emailed to customers upon shipping. It may take up to 24 hours for tracking numbers to post from the time of pick up. Learn more about our Shipping Policy here.
