Shipageddon 2020

Please be aware of this.

Your presents probably won’t arrive on time if you shop online too late. 77% of people are ONLY Christmas shopping online this year vs. 18% who ONLY shopped online last year. Shipageddon is upon us. UPS and FedX are all telling us they can’t hire enough people. No guarantees this year if you buy after Thanksgiving. Last Christmas, most of our Amazon gifts arrived mid-January. I expect mid-February deliveries from Amazon this Christmas.

Please note that UPS is already issuing Service Alerts: https://www.ups.com/us/en/service-alerts.page?id=alert1

In short, UPS has suspended any guarantees on deliveries. We are already seeing 2nd Day Air deliveries not show up on time.
