We've had quite a few backorders over the last 30 days or so.
The extent of this backorder issue is uncommon. PartyLite will occasionally run out of stock, but we manage our inventories closely, and the delay is not usually as long as the one we've been experiencing. I've made some inquiries and learned that the problem has been exacerbated by the huge amount of imports due to the high Aussie dollar. Apparently the clearance docks at customs are chock-o-block and that has been holding up our containers.
Not an excuse, but a reason I thought worth sharing.
Most of the hard work getting the backordered stock out was completed last week. You should check with your hosts and make sure they are informed and happy.
