Why we partner with Amazon.com
At The Ansel Adams Gallery, we care a great deal about our customers and the environment. In order to give our customers the best prices available on merchandise and to help conserve our natural resources consumed by transportation and packaging, we are happy to partner with amazon.com to fulfill some of the products ordered from our website.
For instance, many of our books and calendars are obtained from a publisher in New York. Shipping an item from New York to Yosemite National Park, only to re-package it and ship it to another destination, perhaps right back to the East Coast, is wasteful and unnecessary. By partnering with Amazon, we utilize their fulfillment system, which enables us to deliver your purchase in the most efficient means possible and provide you with the best price available.
