That's what I've always heard. I have placed a few orders recently though and the prices and delivery time were amazing. I was looking forward to ordering more from them.Kelley's has been a pain to do business with for a while. Back in the day they were great. Now I'm excited that I might have a fairly local supply that I can count on.
It was pretty easy to meet the free shipping $ quota. I'm a beginner so I needed everything though. I just found out that a bee club member is a distributor for Mann Lake. He's about 40 minutes away. So now I have that option.Perhaps Mann Lake will improve their shipping costs.
