The Green Room's lead time depends on order size and on whether they are delivering the shipment. Holiday closures do not count as part of warehouse lead time. We will continue to process orders for the next available business day based upon the time your order is submitted, the warehouse’s lead time, and the holiday.

Martin Luther King Jr. 

Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968) was an American activist known for advancing civil rights through civil disobedience and nonviolence. 

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Jan. 17, 2022, is the 27th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a National Day of Service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.
