Website Upgrades & Maintenance

**UPDATE Sunday 6/26/2016 3:45 PM**

The site is up & running and we are taking orders.   We will be switching to a new server early this coming week, which should eliminate any remaining issues.

**UPDATE Friday 6/24/2016 1:30 PM**

The issues have been pinpointed and the major issues resolved.   You will often seen the website available now, but not 100% of the time.  The site will be completely taken down from time to time as some of the issues are handled.

The main "Online Catalog" link is currently unavailable and is being worked on at the moment.  (In the meantime, you can use the search bar or other menu links to navigate the site).

We are making progress, but it's never fast enough, is it?!

Links on this blog such as PDF files will not work until we manually update them.  We begin this process as soon as the website issues are fully addressed.


**UPDATE Friday 6/24/2016 8 AM**

Unfortunately, we are experiencing issues this morning and the site is down.  Launching a website certainly doesn't always go as planned!   We are working closely with our developers and will continue to post updates here.

Thanks again for your patience.

I'm going to go grab a Diet Dr. Pepper and see what I can do to help solve the problem.  :)



***UPDATE 6/23/2016  9 PM***

Our re-developed website has launched.    You may notice some slowness periodically, but overall things should be running smoothly.    Since this is a new system, all users will need to set up a new password.   If you do not have an account with us, we invite you to register so you'll earn points with your purchases!

Passwords can be reset & accounts created here:

Our Friday newsletter will be delayed tomorrow since we've been concentrating our efforts on the launch.

Thanks for your patience while we installed our new website.  :)
Email us with any questions or issues:
We will being restoring broken blog links over the weekend.


Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that we are switching over to a new system today - this will cause intermittent outages throughout the day at   If the site is working when you click there, you are welcome to shop.   The website should be fully functional by Thursday, with a few enhancements such as an improved shopping cart & checkout!

You will also notice some broken links & missing images here on the FWFS blog - we will be working hard to get these restored over the next week.

Thank you for your patience as we make this upgrade!
