JENSON USA'S RESPONSE TO COVID-19

The health and well-being of our employees, customers, and communities are in the front of our minds as we all face the COVID-19 outbreak together.

To ensure the safety of our employees and customers we have moved most employees to remote work arrangements and have taken great care to follow guidelines provided by the CDC to ensure our workplace is safe and sanitary for our shipping and retail crews. 

At this time, we will continue to process your online and phone orders. Though we have had to adjust our normal day-to-day in light of the on-going COVID-19 situation, we will continue to be here for you and all of your cycling needs.

Here are a few answers to common questions we've received over the past few days:

  • Our website is OPEN. We are processing and shipping orders as usual.
  • Our call center is OPEN. Gear Advisors are available to take your calls (from the comfort of their homes).
  • We continue to receive shipments of products from vendors and are able to restock our shelves and fulfill backorders.
  • Our retail store and will-call pickup operations are CLOSED. Any open orders ready for pickup will be shipped ASAP. 

We're all in this together, and while we won't be seeing each other on group rides or cycling's annual events for a while, we wish you the best during this time.
