Please keep in mind that most orders ship next business day. Use the FedEx Time-In-Transit Calculator to determine how long it will take for Ground and Ground Home Delivery to reach you from our zip code of 97124. Time-in-transit does not include the day it ships and only business days count except Home Delivery does include Saturday.
Please take into consideration that FedEx suspends its money-back guarantee for ground and express deliveries during December and that periods of in-climate weather that makes delivery impossible may also void the guarantee of service that is normally guaranteed.
USPS Priority Mail time-in-transit for most of the country is 2 to 3 business days. Priority Mail is a non-guaranteed service and will not reimburse shipping charges for late deliveries.
The Chess Store will be closed and FedEx will not be picking up or delivering. Please keep in mind that Thanksgiving day will not count as an in-transit day.
