Shipping Information for AnythingCostumes.com
Regarding shipping delays, we have this response from the US Postal Service. Other carriers have similar results currently.
"The COVID-19 virus has caused a large volume of mail service delays. USPS is experiencing delays nationwide due to all of the cancelled flights and the virus has also created staffing challenges at our processing facilities and delivery units. Because so many people are at home, the online orders have increased. We currently have more packages in our network thank any holiday peak season in history. Our shipping partners, FedEx, UPS etc. are experiencing the same delays.
We are implementing contingency plans to resolve delays, such as rerouting packages to different processing facilities, and utilizing charter flights."
We thank you for your patience in these unprecedented times.
