  • If you’re placing an order, we can also ship it to your home*

  • We’re doing everything we can to keep our shelves full, but there may be some out of stock items due to interruptions in the supply chain.
  • We’re working directly with health-care and front line services to provide them with gloves. You don’t need to worry as we have a new shipment on its way to ensure you have gloves when it’s time to go back to the shop.

* We will ship to homes for existing customers or a new customer that has been verified, and we can confirm a shop closure. At this time we are reminding customers that we are NOT responsible for any lost or stolen packages. Please review our policy regarding orders shipped to residential addresses.
