I just wanted to take a moment to update those of you on the West Coast about our plans for a West Coast shipping facility. Originally we had planned to ship both from our California and Reno locations. After plotting the logistics and examining inventory and staffing levels, we determined that it would make more sense to use our Reno location as the central shipping point for the Western half of the country.
We are currently in the process of stocking the Reno facility with product and developing procedures for filling and processing orders. This phase of the operation should, hopefully, be concluded fairly quickly. Once that is done, we will put the Reno facility online and ship the majority of the West Coast Orders we receive from that facility.
All thread and assorted products will ship from the Reno facility to our West Coast customers. Blanks and Ntrans orders may ship from the Michigan facility, and will have a longer ship time, as those items must often be created. Our goal is to turn around all orders for thread and other supplies on the same day. Items that require more work than simply being pulled from the shelves will require a longer shipping time.
If you would like to be notified when the Reno facility is online and ready to ship, please contact us and we will be happy to e-mail you when shipping from that facility is available.
