    Scary Fast

    I've placed a couple of orders with the Jacks over the last few days. Shame on me for not making up my mind and/or being more patient 'cause I had to pay two shipping charges, but (back to my point) in both cases I got the "order complete" email only an hour or so after submitting my order.

    I'm not complaining, I'm just sayin'.

    I've order things from the Jacks before and it seems like it's always like this. Fast. Good stuff fast, and fast is good.

    I've been happily pleased with the speed of delivery on every order I've made with JRB; very fast!

    Only exception was Hot Springs, NC. Apparently, there is no such thing as overnight delivery to that town. Wasn't the Jacks' fault, but I felt silly paying the extra for overnight and being told later by the PO that such a thing didn't exist in Hot Springs. Far worse places to be stuck waiting for gear though.

    Their reputation for quick shipping made the decision for me to use them for quilts. I think companies underestimate how much quick delivery means to customers!

    Scary Fast

    Super fast, and great customer service. I received my order within a few days of purchasing. There was a tiny problem with the stitching on my Sierra Snivler but I called them up, spoke with Jack and got a replacement two days later. These guys are top notch.

    Scary fast is right! Ordered a Bear Mountain Bridge UL on Thursday. It's coming today, Saturday. They said it would be Monday. Seems to be a worm hole or sumthin'....

    Order placed Sunday 10:46pm
    Order complete Monday morning 8:54 am

    ....now to wait for USPS (and then Canada Post) to do their part.
