Minor delivery delays due to pandemic safety measures
Due to the current pandemic we are taking steps to ensure safety for both you and our staff. These safety measures are adding more time than usual to our shipping process. Record package volume, COVID-19 restrictions and weather events may also cause carrier delays.
We are backordered on some products and are doing our best to replenish our supply as quickly as possible.
Thank you for your patience and support of Monticello during this extraordinary time!
