Special Notice to Washington State customers ONLY;

The State of Washington has changed the way we are required to collect sales tax from a flat rate to 'destination based sales tax'. Sales tax is charged on your total order including shipping and handling fees and is based upon the tax rate of where we are shipping your order. We are in the process of figuring out how to program this into our website for the various juridictions in the state. In the meantime our website is calculating sales tax at a rate of 10.4% which is the highest tax in Washington State. Once received in-house we will re-calculate the sales tax to the rate for your specific address.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call the store during business hours. Phone numbers can be found at the bottom of each page and are also located on our Contact Us page.
