The Question Club
I'm performing with a group on Friday in a city about a 4-hour drive from where I live. Until 10 minutes ago, I completely forgot about ordering the shirt that everyone is wearing. I can afford it, but I want to make sure that it will get to my house by Thursday evening (I'm leaving very early Friday morning). The online store only has UPS available (Ground [5-7 business days], 3 Day Select, 2nd Day Air, and Next Day Air Saver), and I can only afford up to 3 Day Select.|
The problem: it doesn't specify on the website that the business is open today. Their shipping detail page has the following info:
--Orders placed Monday through Thursday before 3:00pm EST will ship on the same day
--Orders placed Monday through Thursday after 3:00pm EST will ship the next business day
--Orders placed on Friday after 3:00pm or during the weekend will ship on Monday.
Is it wise to assume that, even if they aren't open today and the shirt ships Monday, if I choose 3 Day Select, the shirt will be at my house by Thursday night if I order right now? (BTW, the company is located in Colorado; I'm in Florida)
DK/DC: If you order items online regularly, how long does it normally take to get to you (ground shipping)?
