All orders placed and/or shipped outside of Missouri will have no sales taxes.   It is the responsibility of the customer purchasing products from this site to file and claim all taxes due to the respective states.

All tobacco products are shipped by UPS with an adult signature required.  All other non-tobacco related Items will be shipped by either USPS or UPS (this will be dependent upon weight.)

Incorrect addresses may also result in return packages. If customer decides to have the package reshipped to a deliverable address, the applicable shipping charges will be billed again. If customer decides to decline reshipment, the order will be restocked and customer will receive a refund of the purchase price of the merchandise, less the shipping charges and a 10% restocking fee.

Customer is responsible for any customs and duties that are applicable to the order. These are processed and calculated by the customs brokerage upon entrance into any country other than the USA.

All International orders take an average of 10-14 business days to be delivered.

For fraud prevention purposes, we only allow first time customers to ship to their current billing address.
