Delayed Mail and Packages?

We know how crucial it is for your package to arrive on time and we want to keep you updated on any possible delays during transit. Our processing time is back to normal 0-4 business days, meaning your package will be shipped out promptly. 

Once it leaves our warehouse, it will be picked up by USPS or UPS and taken to our distribution centers in Houston for scanning, sorting, and final delivery. However, please note that USPS is currently experiencing very heavy delays at their distribution centers due to new technology updates beyond our control. This is impacting small businesses in our community since Christmas.

We want to ensure that our customers have a worry-free experience when it comes to receiving their packages. While we typically use USPS for free shipping, effective 1/21/24 we are now using UPS for all qualifying free shipping orders over $150+ and “Boomshakalaka Free Shipping” orders until USPS returns back to normal.
