The actual ordering process was timely, courteous, and easy. Shipping time frames remain a problem: the Order shipped on 10December2020 and has not yet been received. Actual receipt of my Orders almost always approaches 30 day from the shipping date...and in [several] instances, approached 45 days out from the shipping date.
