Order Online
We've tried to make our online ordering process as easy as possible. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-381-7179.

  1. As you navigate our site, add as many items to your shopping cart as you wish. If you set up an account with us, the items will remain in your shopping cart for up to 30 days. During this time, you may see what is in your shopping cart while logged in by clicking "View Cart" at the top right of any page. If you are wanting to save items without losing them from your cart after the 30 days, check out our Wish List feature. Save all the products you want, and even have the option to email it to friends and family as a gift idea list!
  2. Click Checkout. Checking out is a 4-step process. Help is available at every step. NOTE: If you have an account with us, this process is shortened. For more information on setting up an online account, please click here.
    • Step 1: Begin Checkout. You can choose to sign in, register for an account, or checkout without registering.
    • Step 2: Address. Enter your billing address. If the shipping address and billing address are the same, make the appropriate selection. You will be able to edit this through the entire checkout process. An email address and phone number are both required for placing an order online. Your email address is required for sending you an order confirmation email and links to tracking information as available.
    • Step 3: Shipping. Choose a shipping method. You will be able to edit this any time before finalizing your order.
    • Step 4: Place Order. This is where you will enter credit card information, and apply any coupons or gift certificates to the order. Here you will be able to verify and/or edit any of the order information, as well as add a gift message if your order is a gift shipping to someone else.
