On Friday October 29, 2010, bombs were found on UPS and FedEx Cargo planes. This is alarming news to all of us. Currently it is believed the terrorists were planning on blowing the planes up over populated areas in the United States. Doing this would give the terrorists the largest amount of exposure and the ability to kill as many Americans as possible.
Our top priority at The Shipping Place is America’s safety. Effective immediately, all packages brought to The Shipping Place will be inspected for security purposes. When you bring your packages to The Shipping Place, please do not tape them shut, or we will be forced to cut them open to inspect their contents.
After the inspection is complete, we will securely tape your package for you at no additional cost. We are glad to do this to play our part in ensuring the safety of our nation.
All prepaid items entering our store will also be inspected, regardless of the carrier used, whether it is UPS, FedEx, DHL, US Postal Service or a tractor trailer company.
We apologize for any inconvenience this procedure may cause and trust that we can count on the understanding and support of our customers.
