Basic answer is: We charge you what the Shipping Companies charge us + $1.
Explanation of basic answer: Shipping is determined by the weight, dimensions of the package, and destination zip code, plus one dollar for materials and handling (box/cushioning materials/labels/employee time/etc.) There may also be other surcharges for large or fragile items. Also determining cost is which shipping company you choose to have the package shipped to you (we can ship U.S.P.S, UPS, FedEx, or Freight) Then each of these companies has different levels of service (how quickly do you need your order) ground, priority, 2nd day overnight, etc.
If you call or email us to find out the cost please be patient with us, as there is a lot of factors to determine shipping costs for each shipment. Most cases we will need to first get some basic information and then call or email you back after we have determined an estimate. Usually same day (except weekends and before 8 am PST and after 5 pm PST, as we so not staff this department on these days or before or after these times).
Northwest Seed & Pet No longer sells Puppies or Kittens. Due to a recent law signed in law by Washington State, retailers such as Northwest Seed & Pet can no longer sell puppies and or kittens. For more info, please follow this link to the Washington State Bill page. (HB 1424 – 2021-22)
Potatoes are a weather dependent item. The suppliers won’t ship them till they are sure that they won’t freeze during trucking to a stores location. Then the same thing goes for shipping from us to you. Freezing will hurt the chance of the spud being successful in propagating, or will rot once you put them in the ground. Being a northern climate city, here in Spokane, Washington, we normally do not see our shipment arrive till the last week of February to the first week of March. (2011 we did not get our potatoes shipped to us till March 15 and it was the 18th before we could start selling them) Then there is another few days to get these items stored and stocked on our shelves before I can get my hands on them for shipping. Short answer is that they usually start shipping the first to third week of March.
Garlic is usually available for purchase by the 3rd to 4th week of September and we will usually have garlic throughout the month of October. By the first week of November we will only have a few varieties left and very limited quantities available.
Currently we do not offer a Low-Cost Vaccination Clinic at either of our locations. Hopefully in the future, if a local veterinarian would like to offer a clinic at our locations, we would like to offer such a service.
