What does it mean when a product has an ETA (estimated time of arrival)?

Due to ongoing industry-wide supply challenges, unfortunately some products are out of stock.

When products are out of stock, we work with our suppliers and try to provide an ETA. (Estimated Time of Arrival). In some cases the date may not have been establish and the product may be listed as TBA/TBD (To Be Announced/To Be Determined).

Our customer service team has access to the same ETA/TBD/TBA information that is provided on the website. We will work with our partners to provide updates and replenish supply as quickly as possible.

  • ETA- Estimated time of arrival
  • TBD/TBA - To be determined/To be announced. This means we do not have an estimated arrival date.
