We are aware that many of our customers who order via our web store are not home to receive packages during the day. We send Express Mail packages with "signature waiver requested" which means that your mail carrier may leave your package without your signature. However, we cannot be held responsible if your mail carrier chooses not to honor our request and instead leaves a notice to pick up your package at the local Post Office. Should you choose not to to pick up your package within a week, it will be returned to us. Your account will be credited for the cost of the item(s) you ordered less the standard restocking fees, but no refund of shipping fees will be credited.
We also cannot be held responsible for packages that "disappear" after the Postal Service confirms delivery of your package. Sorry, but we are unable to offer refunds or replacements if your neighbor, your neighbors dog, or anyone else takes your package.
