Where does DR Foster ship from?

I use Bigal's most of time because I get my stuff in 2 days. I order urgent items from Thatpetstore because transit time is only one day.

I know Dr. Foster is a great store and am very interested in using them. But if the transit time is like one week, I'd be too impatient to use them.

I ordered 3, 20 pound bags of Eco-Complete from them and it took 3 days with Fedex ground to ship to Northeast Washington state.

This is good to know. I live in St. Paul, Minnesota - 1 day shipping. I had never considered this before, but now I will.

We used to go canoeing up by Rhinelander and it's a real pretty area up there.

Those of you in MN & WI are lucky! 3 days ain't too bad if I don't need items immediately. I once ordered two items from Petstore.com and didn't know that their warehouse was in California. My patience was tested while I was waiting 10 days...

Rhinelander and Eagle River are only 20 miles apart. Here in Northern Wisconsin any one with in 30 miles is a neighbor

That particular region of Idaho has a population density of less than one person per square mile. Probably lots of tiny back roads and only one UPS driver for a few hundred square miles.

rhinelander is where the main store and warehouse are located. if you get a chance to go in person its quite impressive. tho the actual store has very few aquarium products on display. everything Ive ordered has come from there also. but they probably have a warehouse in Eagle River as well.
