Shipping impact: USPS observing day of mourning December 5

USPS has notified all their customers that December 5, 2018, will be a national day of mourning for USPS in honor of former President George H.W. Bush. Due to this, USPS will not deliver or schedule pick-ups on December 5, 2018.  To avoid a negative impact on customer deliveries, a shipping holiday has been set for December 5. This means that orders placed after your order cutoff time today can be shipped on December 6. For any orders with a ship date of Wednesday, December 5, please ship using alternate carriers to ensure you meet the delivery promise to customers.
