- DUE TO COVID 19 UPS has suspended all refunds on shipping. (so yes, they are legally allowed to steal) Because of this we will issue refunds on a case by case basis until UPS comes to their senses.
- UPS DOES NOT GUARANTEE THEIR DELIVERY TIMES, plain and simple. Only a US Gov Agency is allowed to falsely advertise. For this reason USPS deliveries will not be refunded because of delivery times.

GPI cannot control the weather nor can we be held responsible for delayed deliveries because of weather or mechanical malfunction. If we could control the weather, we would make NY 75 degrees all year long.
UPS does not deliver to PO Boxes, so where eligible, orders to be delivered to PO Boxes will be sent via USPS Priority Mail.
Orders within the USA selected for Ground, 3 days, 2nd day or Overnight will also be shipped via UPS.
Shipping to AK and Hawaii will go Priority USPS mail for a small charge IF the order fits in a large Flat Rate box and totals more than $150.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where people steal credit cards, make fraudulent purchases, and have the order shipped to a different address so they can then sell the merchandise. With that said, all first time orders must ship to the billing address. If your shipping and billing address do not match, you must call ahead of time and clear your shipment otherwise your order will not ship out.
All international orders ship via UPS International only. Shipping prices only include delivery, they do NOT include customs, taxes, duties or broker fees. Every country is different. Before ordering you should first research the costs of importing goods from the US.
We do not ship via DHL or Carrier Pigeon.
