Hi Gears,

So the gov. is in a bit of a pickle and as such they have had to cut a few $$$ from the budget.  This means less cash for the USPS which in turn means they are shutting down some offices and services.  Here in Salem, OR we have a pretty large mail distribution center.  That distribution center, up until May 1st, 2013 would accept packages as late as 8:45pm and would still get them out for delivery same day.  By delivery I mean out to the next post office.  This means I was able to ship packages late in to the day.  However, as a result of the budget cuts, our distribution center will now be closing at 5:45pm.  This means I've had to move the order deadline per day from 5pm PST, to 4pm PST.  

I do apologize to everyone that enjoys placing those late orders.  Unfortunately, UPS is expensive, Fedex closes at 5pm and USPS now closes at 5:45pm.  From here on, orders placed after 4pm PST will almost certainly ship next day.

Questions?  Sound off below in the comments or just send us some email.
