When Does Ulta Beauty Restock?
Ulta Beauty’s restocking schedule varies from store to store based on location and store popularity, but both stores and distribution centers generally receive shipments at least once per week.
We contacted various Ulta Beauty stores in California, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, and Washington to find out when they restock.
Most representatives we spoke with said that their store usually restocks on a particular day of the week — Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays were the most common responses.
Store associates try to restock shelves on the same day that the shipment arrives, or the day after if the shipment arrives in the evening.
Ulta Beauty stores in larger cities like San Francisco, Seattle, and New York often receive new shipments twice a week, usually on Wednesdays and Saturdays or Thursdays and Sundays, customer service representatives said. However, the shipments don’t always arrive on the same days each week.
If you’re wondering when Ulta Beauty will receive a new product or restock a specific product, it’s best to call your nearest store. An associate should be able to tell you when the store expects its next shipment. In some cases, associates will hold an item for you after it comes back in stock.
There is no set day of the week when the Ulta Beauty distribution centers restock to fulfill Ulta.com’s orders.
We spoke with customer service representatives for Ulta.com, all of whom confirmed that there is no set schedule for warehouse restocking. However, the representatives stated that new stock is listed on the Ulta Beauty website within 24 hours after the distribution center receives a shipment.
