IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING LOCAL PICKUPS: DDM is considered a life-sustaining company because we are an internet retail company that provides essential products. Due to the recent outbreak of Coronavirus, however, we are changing our local order pickup policy at our West Chicago location. To pick up an order you will need to order first. The quickest way is to order in advance through our online shopping cart. There you can select the local pickup option. Or, you can call 630-293-1337 for assistance, to confirm availability of parts, and to place your order. Once ordered, your parts will be available for pickup in the lobby of our north side front entrance. Longer items will be picked up on the south side loading dock.
