Questions & Answers


Q: When will my order ship?
 A: If we receive your order before Noon CST Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, it will usually ship the same day. Orders received after noon will ship the next business day. Because we can't have perishable products in transit over a weekend, orders received after noon Wednesday will ship the following Monday. Average delivery time for standard, ground-shipped orders is within three business days.
Example: If an order is placed as UPS Ground, received after Noon on Monday, is considered UPS Zone 3, 4 or 5, Bernie’s will ship the order the following Monday to insure product safety.
