Order Status 

Yes, this is now working! We have added more information, the quantities received, and the process update (like "expected on ## date", "received", "shipped"). It is still a semi-automated system, so if you get an email saying your order is on the its way, but the order status says "on the pulling table", do not worry... your order was packed and SHIPPED! This system will be FULLY automated when our overall system will be implemented

Sober news: for those not aware, Lisa Snow (GreatModels assistant manager from 2003 to 2012) passed away on March 8, 2017 due to complication from a late diagnosis of Acute Respiratory Disease and other complications. She was 43 yr-old and had a 12 yr-old, Baylee. We are indebted to the marvelous service and personality of Lisa through the years we were lucky to have her.
