Sometimes inventory in our website might not be updated. Some items are selling fast, suppliers are going low on inventory. Under the actual situation, Managing a huge inventory - about 6,000 different items in our store and keeping track of what we sell every day is right now an impossible task, on top of all this, most of our suppliers are closed and all of them are running very low on inventory, since there have been a complete stop on imports way even before the pandemic. Also, we are trying to fulfill the orders fast but we cannot guarantee fast delivery. USPS has informed us they have delays also due to the pandemic.
