Holiday Gifts and Shipping 2021
Greetings! We here at Todd Alan Woodcraft hope this finds you and your families well as we head into the holiday season of 2021.
First and foremost we want you to know that we’ve been staying ahead of the current global supply news since 2019 and have been preparing for supply shortages.
This Holiday Season, we are here for you and your gifting needs!
Todd Alan Woodcraft is fully stocked with the quantities of products we normally carry online and in our Vancouver Washington Showroom!
We suggest that when purchasing Christmas or Holiday gifts, the earlier the better- as we’ve heard shipping operations are effecting delivery dates. Early on, our team realized that there would be a lack of products for the holidays in 2021 through 2023 from many Big Box and other small business retailers- and that’s why we thought ahead!
Our preparations are allowing us to keep our prices affordable and so we can offer a range of quality products in variable price ranges. Part of our forethought includes offering installment payments through Afterpay, a simple and easy to use 3rd party, payment system.
We will do our best to make sure your orders are shipped as soon as possible from our store. For the record, we must state, once products are in the hands of the select shipping companies, their delivery timing is out of our control.
We ask that you please support products Made in the USA and also support Small businesses with your holiday purchasing power!
Why is this shipping breakdown happening?
Long answer short: We felt it was important to address what we see happening within the Socioeconomic structure of the United States currently; And how this will effect shipping during the remainder of Fall and going into the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year Holidays.
Covid restrictions/mandates from 2020 that many states placed on what “they" deemed “Nonessential“ workforces and Trade Schools, along with financial incentives not to work for many people, caused the US to currently be in the beginning stage of a seemingly coordinated rapid collapse of the supply chain. This is effecting products and parts being imported into the country (along with transportation of US created products within our country). Also, this caused a shortage of logistics employees from Route setters to new Truck Drivers.
Also, Unconstitutional Vaccine Mandates (for non-Government unapproved, big pharma chemical cocktails) from both the Government and Big Business have begun to cause staffing shortages in many areas of transportation and logistics due to mass layoffs and firings
Currently, Trucks in use are breaking down with little parts to repair them which those parts are sitting off our coasts on cargo ships. Many shipping companies are seeing delivery delays in many major hubs due to understaffing and logistics.
To sum it up, there are dozens of stories one can google of consumers not receiving products in a timely manor, and this is the best explanation why.
God Bless You, Your Family, Your Friends, God Bless the USA and the God Bless this world. We wish you the best during this time and a healthy and happy 2021 Holiday Season. Thank you for your continued support of Todd Alan Woodcraft!
