The collective chant today has been the title of this article. Unfortunately there has been a shortage of parachute cord for the last two years now. Manufacturers can't meet the demand and they have machines spinning cord 24/7.
Barre Army Navy Store has to buy cord 2-3 months in advance so we try to project inventory that far but so far it has been like trying to play pin the tail on the donkey with a badger. We can't catch up.
So we are doing two things we have a pretty up to date in stock listing of paracord see http://shop.vtarmynavy.com/parachute-cord-available-for-immediate-shipment-c1414.aspx
We update this listing every time we get a shipment in which runs about a 2 week cycle. We get in 1-2 pallets or about 1000-2000 pounds with each shipment. Orders get filled first come first serve so if we do not have something you can order it here where we show all items http://shop.vtarmynavy.com/parachute-cord-c24.aspx
If you end up with a back order you may be able to get a different size iaw if the 250 or 500 is out we may have a 1000. In many cases we charge the difference between the price of the two rolls and ship at no extra charge.
Barre Army Navy Store is working hard to make you happy. Questions email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-479-2289
