Retail Services

  • Costume rentals and custom costume orders are unavailable for the foreseeable future. Ready-made costume items are available for purchase at Tarpley's, but changing rooms will remain closed at all stores. 
  • Our historic bakery has re-opened at a reduced capacity due to increased safety measures. Please see the Ginger Cakes product page for up-to-date information about availability.

Online Shopping and Customer Service

  • Express shipping is not available at this time.

  • Our call center has re-opened! Phone lines are open 11 am - 1 pm EST, Monday-Friday. You may also contact us online and we will reply to your message at our earliest opportunity. Our response may be delayed.

  • Due to increased demand, UPS and USPS are experiencing service delays. You should expect your order to take a little longer than usual to arrive due to service disruptions caused by COVID-19.

  • We are experiencing a higher than normal online order volume. Our current fulfillment time is approximately 3-7 business days. 

Thank you for your continued support and patience! We count ourselves very lucky to have your loyalty and patronage as we face this challenging time in our history together. Like our Nation Builders before us, we will persist and come out stronger on the other side of this. We wish you and your family good health and safety.
