Spring time is a busy time for Lifetime ProductsFor some that have been coming to our website to shop during the months of March through June are likely already familiar with this post before I even write it. Items from Lifetime Products are frequently out of stock, or on a production delay, during the Spring season. Many of their items are made in the United States, so they usually are only out of stock for a week or two at a time in most cases. However, other items are imported from factories overseas. These items can be out of stock for months at a time, depending on how accurately they were able to forecast demand. We will always try to provide updated expected ship dates on individual listings. Before ordering any item from Lifetime we encourage you to look at the extended description for the products. The extended description is the view that shows a large picture, volume pricing, and many more product details then the short description for the item. If the item is on back order, a large font red message will show at the top of the listing that will provide the expected ship date. If there is no message, then we expect the item to be available to ship right away. Also, as always, you are also welcome to contact us via phone or email if you have any questions about availability.
