Out of this makeshift workshop in the basement of a family’s Olyphant home will come hundreds of Christmas gifts for people across the globe.
Joanne Sepinsky and her husband Jason create custom glassware and other home decors for their business, J&J Designz.
They’ve recently heard from customers who’ve been waiting on orders to be delivered to their doorsteps for weeks now.
“We originally were thinking they were lost because there was no tracking information being provided past December 1st,” said Joanne Sepinsky of J&J Designz.
She reached out to her local post office, which informed her that priority mail was taking two to three weeks to reach people, instead of the usual one to three days.
“I was floored. Because there is nothing out there to indicate that – I mean, you hear about delays, but nothing that much,” said Sepinsky.
The Sepinskys’ business is entirely online; they do everything out of their home and ship to customers all over the world.
They rely heavily on the postal service.
