Don't know about Joisey... My last HF shipment came out of Dillon, SC. Definitely not the People's Republic.

Their shipping sucks even when you pay for it. Three freaking weeks for something to travel less than 400 miles?

That's a week for the order dept to get their act together, a week for the shipping department to poorly package it in recycled neo- cardboard boxes, and a week for the truckers to bash it around. Replacements for the damaged/forgotten/wrong items, OTOH, takes just a week. Go figure.
Then again, I have an HF store half an hour away and use it often.

More like two weeks for them to get around to pulling it, six days before the shipping department gets around to packing it, and one day for the truckers to bash it around. Probably changing trucks three times in that single day before arriving at your doorstep. Local P&D to distribution point, then line haul to the next distribution point, then local P&D to your door. Total time probably 20 hours or so. (They used the US Mail for mine, but it's the same principle.)

Yeah, but does HF have any distributors in the US much less NJ?

NJ would be a good location for an east coast distribution point. They have good ports, good highway system and are close to a large percentage of the population. For those reasons NJ is a distribution point for many companies.
Grainger, McMaster, Amazon, and others ship from distribution points around the country so it would be a good idea for HF also. Ed

The wholesaler may. By "distributor", I was thinking wholesale, not retail.
