I have gotten emails from several customers concerned that their packages have been lost because they are late and/or tracking data shows them to have been in the Jersey City sorting facility for days.

Those packages are now moving. Most have been delivered already.

Please understand that shopping online this year has been unprecedented, and the USPS, UPS and FedEx are trying to run beyond their capacity. In the 10 years I have been shipping packages, (thousands and thousands of packages), the USPS has NEVER lost a Priority Mail package, and has lost only two or three First Class packages. Please be patient. Your packages will arrive.
