UPDATES: September 27, 2018: ITEM APPROACHING NOT-ORDERABLE STATUS

ITEM APPROACHING NOT-ORDERABLE STATUS

Sales for the following holiday catalog product have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders. It will be at least 30 days before this item is back in stock. 

148028: Timeless Tidings Project Kit

In order to give you time to contact your customers so they may close any affected orders, this product will remain available until Monday, October 1 at 10:00 AM (MT); it will then be placed in not-orderable status. After that time, please consult the Inventory Status Report (ISR) to track its availability. 

Additionally, when you enter the item number for this product on a customer, workshop, or demonstrator order, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when this product is back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for this item and it is again available for purchase.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Explanatory note: Costs incurred by backorders can be in the tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars; therefore, after weighing the variables, we occasionally must make the decision to temporarily turn off an item number rather than permit backorders to accrue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, putting a product in not-orderable status while we wait for the stock to replenish allows the company to hold costs down. 

As a reminder, be sure to regularly check the Inventory Status Report (ISR) as you plan your events and workshops; this will help you keep track of any items that may be in backordered or not-orderable status.
