I have been doing rockets with kids for about 30 years. Stopped for a few years after moving but am back into it again. Estes seems to be the only game in town to get supplies. Just ordered a few hundred dollars worth of supplies to do some classes. One of the rockets I ordered was cheap. NOT what was shown. Asked if I could return it and they agreed but shipping will be almost as much as the rocket kit to send back. They told me this also.
My question: Does anyone know of another company I can explore with better service.
Thanks.

Shipping is the kicker in all things right now. What kind of supplies are you interested in?

First rate companies I’ve dealt with in the past, in no particular order:
https://www.balsamachining.com/
https://www.acsupplyco.com/
https://www.asp-rocketry.com/
https://www.erockets.biz/
https://www.apogeerockets.com/

FWIW I think Estes is second to none for service but we have choices so take a look at some of these fine vendor
The list above is good. I use eRockets the most on that list. Apogee has great service but upcharge other vendor products that they carry. I would also add the following:

https://www.csrocketry.com/ - Great prices, fast shipping, great service.
