@chapmansk Thanks for reaching out!
Advanced Elements is one of our approved vendors for special orders. The special order process is only able to be fulfilled in store, however, so you will need to wait until your Local REI store is open for business. We do not have a schedule available at this time of when stores will be opening as it is a very dynamic situation. Your best bet is to check back on your local store page to stay up to date on developments.
In terms of 'lead time' for a special order, it is dependent on the vendor, as all order processing goes through them. Once the special order is placed, Advanced Elements handles fulfillment, and that timing can vary.
Hopefully this helps!
