Default Really Hops Direct? - shipping comment...

So I was doing up my order from Hops direct. I figure 1lb Cascade, 1lb Centennial, 1lb Northern Brewer, 1lb US Goldings. (I plan to try DeathBrewer's SMaSH Vienna/NB, BM's Centenntial Blonde, and http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f68/o-fl...tandard-41072/.

Except when I go to put my address in, I find that my province isn't on the list.

I know we are small... but I am really sad now... emailing them to see what they can do about this!

They also spelled Manitoba wrong (they spelled it Manatoba). They did manage to get all three territories though. Because I am sure there are hundreds of brewers there.

Ah well the joys of living in Newfoundland and Labrador...

But you get to see all the salt cod drying in the summer!

Rocks, salt cod, and yellow and baby blue houses FTW!

Out of curiosity, did you send them an email to let them know about this address problem?

Yeah... I sent them an email a few minutes ago (I didn't mention the Manitoba thing.)

I wasn't in a big rush to place an order, so it won't hurt me any to wait for their reply. I also made a stab at getting a shipping estimate, but I don't know if they will include it or not.

I'd stay on them about it...I placed a 4 lb order with them not too long ago and it took several calls and 3 weeks to see my hops. I am not saying they are a bad company by any means, and clearly 4 lbs is probably small potatoes to them (which is totally understandable), but they may need their hand held a bit if you plan on seeing those hops anytime soon.

I thought Province was in Rhode Island. You should try a Rhode Island address.

Sure thing... if I ever decide to enter comps I'll be sure to mail through you as well...

I figure if they don't respond to my email in a couple of days I will give them a call.
