Shipping Delays and Change in Charges
As you may have heard, the postal service is having extreme delays in many of the services they offer, particularly with priority mail packages. Unfortunately many small businesses around the country rely on this service and have been negatively impacted by this. This has caused us to ship with other delivery services which are typically more expensive but is the only method we have to ensure we get your items to you in a reasonable amount of time.
In response, we have had to tweak a few costs and shipping structures in order to ensure we remain profitable while still servicing our customers close and not so close to home. These are the changes:
- We have temporarily made "Standard" shipping now called "Snail Mail" to indicate shipping via USPS and there is no guarantee of speed.
- All orders under $100 have Expedited options that will ship UPS and get to anywhere in the US in a few days.
- We will keep the $100+ free shipping, but know that there is no guarantee on when you will get your package. Sometimes it can go UPS for the same cost, sometimes not. We have added an Expedited option for $100+ orders that will ensure you get it in a few days.
We hate to see this, as this only makes us less competitive and our costs rise just like your costs do as well, but it is the only way to ensure we continue to be proud to ship across the street or across the country in a reasonable time frame.
Please hang in there with us and hopefully we can go back to our normal shipping prices as things smooth out with USPS.
