    Ok. Thanks. That seems do-able for me.

    I support your decision.
    Isn't the real issue with you waiting soooo long for packages to be delivered to you a problem with Customs? I would think that would be more of a problem than anything else.
    I have a freind who lives in Ontario and she has family living near Niagara Falls on the USA side, so as a rule she will have the packages mailed to her family that lives here in the USA, otherwise she has said that it is basically a nightmare due to customs at times.

    Thanks Al! It's nice to know that you read these comments and the concerns of your customers and then do your best to address them. I have never had a problem getting my items from you guys in a timely manner. But it's always nice to have options for shipping and thank you for offering them.

    Beyond that... wishing you all the best with all the exciting things you have going on in your life right now!

    I haven't place an online order with them in the last few months. When I last ordered I didn't see any info in the ordering process that promised any specific date it would be delivered. So why do you think 10 or 11 days is too long to wait?

    Because I can get the same things in 3-5 days from anyone else. That and I only live about 150 miles from the store, and shouldn't HAVE to wait nearly 2 weeks for what I can get from cross-country in that 3-5 day time. Just simple, sensible logistics. DON"T send my stuff to southern Mississippi then all that way BACK again. It arrives in pretty sad shape.

    aren't you glad you don't have to wait like that anymore. What a great day!

    Thanks Al for taking steps in the right direction. :-)

    As I see it now:

    5-12 days shipping $5
    1-5 days shippiing $7 (would probably take 4 days to me)
    1-2 days $12

    OR order from someone who uses priority mail and get it in 2 days for $5-7.

    But again Al, thanks for giving us options!

    Also, just wondering how Fed Ex gets "ground shipments" to us in 1-5 days but FedEx Smartpost takes 5-12? Aren't those also "ground shipments"?

    Just to shed a bit of light here, ground shipping is different from the smart post in the service level (Ground is a service level where shipping times are guaranteed where smart post is just a range)

    Ground shipping is actually much better than you'd think, take a look at this map of delivery times -


    you'll see about half the country is 2 day shipping for that service, with 85% in the 3 day range. 5 days is just covering our bases in case you're in a corner of maine where the mail comes every other tuesday.

    Priority is great, but we ship millions of packages a year, I promise you the post office isn't magical and screws up a huge percentage of packages and shipping times. I've quit listening to shipping providers promises and started listening just to the data a long time ago. We've used UPS, USPS, and Fedex all extensively now, so we have some pretty good data on shipping realities we're going off of. Not to say fedex is the best, but they're a good solution for right now, if we can get a better service for a good price, we'll go to them. We're focused on service levels now though

    I love it when we get all nerdy in here

    I live just outside the pink area below MO. So WHY does Smart(?)post send all my stuff from you all the way to southern Miss, and then have to ship it ALL the way back again?
