As a lot of you have recognized this week, there is no longer a local meet shipping option at checkout. The local shipping in Knoxville Tn discounted rate has also been removed.
Unfortunately both of these options were being grossly misused & I've removed both options until I can find a better way to do it.
For the local meet pick up option, it was being used as a means to avoid shipping and with no intention to ever pick up the order. Also, orders were being left stranded. It takes a lot of time for me to organize meets, tag & sort, only for me to not receive any type of response to pick up the order. I run this business out of my house, I don't have the room to hold on to orders for months at a time.
For the local discounted shipping option for Knoxville, this was in place last year to help local ladies who couldn't always meet. Unfortunately people all over the country took advantage of this option only to save a $1. I don't receive any type of shipping discount for shipping locally so it all came out of pocket for us :/ As much as I would LOVE to offer discounted shipping rates across the board, i'm just a small business and I have shipping the lowest I can get right now.
Thank you for listening to my rant & I appreciate all of you ladies who picked up consistently and on time!
I will continue tagging for meets for orders that were already placed and going forward there will not be any pick up option for new orders </3
Should I be able to find a way to be able to offer it again without others taking advantage, I will let you know.
