Union Mercantile offers free shipping for purchases of $75 or more (pre-tax, pre-shipping, net of discounts) with a few exclusions. Some large or heavy items might be excluded from the free shipping offer. If an item is excluded, there will be a note within the product description that says something similar to Flat Rate Shipping $15.
We rely on our software to calculate shipping charges, and sometimes things can calculate incorrectly. If you have a question regarding the calculated shipping charges, please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone during regular business hours at 769-222-1053. We will be glad to manually calculate shipping charges for the products you are planning to purchase.
We ship almost all products from our store inventory, not a fulfillment center. We will disclose in the description if a product is going to be shipped from somewhere other than our store. We will ship within two business days, but usually one, and when we can, same day. Please let us know in the Notes box at checkout if you would like anything wrapped, or would like us to include a note such as “Happy Birthday” with the gift.
USPS shipping is our recommended shipping method, because we don’t have a UPS drop off location in our small town. When we request a pickup from UPS, that can add an extra day to the process. Other factors that affect shipping timing... Our town Post Office closes at noon on Wednesday’s and at 10:30 on Saturday’s, so that can be a factor.
When possible, we reuse sturdy boxes and packaging materials to reduce waste.
