How do I remove a product from my cart?
Click on the box next to the item you would like to remove from your cart.  The box is located under the word "Remove.'  Next, click the 'UPDATE SHOPPING CART' button to complete the action.  Now you may continue shopping. 

Why haven't I gotten an email confirmation for my order?
Check your junk mail.  It may be going there.  If it is, add knightsgear@kofc.org to your approved senders list. 

When will I get my order?
You can expect most orders of items that are in-stock to be delivered to you within 5-7 business days.  Shipments leave our warehouse 1 to 2 business days after your order is received.  Personalized items take 10 to 12 business days to produce.  Shipping time from Cincinnati, Ohio varies from 1 to 4 days within the US.  Canadian and overseas shipments vary, based on distance and customs procedures.

What if an item is out of stock?
If an item is out of stock, we will send you an email telling you within a day of when you place your order.  We will ship all of your order together, when the backordered item is available, in order to keep shipping costs low. 

When and how do you ship and how much will it cost?
When you check out, shipping costs are calculated based on weight and size of package(s), distance to shipping destination from Cincinnati, Ohio, and whether you requested expedited shipping service.  Orders for items in inventory that are placed by noon are usually shipped that same day. Orders placed later in the day will not ship until the next business day.  Orders ship via UPS or SurePost.  UPS offers three levels of service: Ground, Second Day Air and Next Day Air.  Weekends do not factor in to shipping time.  Ground can take 1-5 days in transit.  SurePost leaves our location via UPS and is then passed on to the USPS for delivery to you.  SurePost often costs a bit less than UPS and can take 1-4 days longer to arrive.
