How do stores deal with lost packages? I ordered a cardigan from South Willard and the UPS tracking says delivered, but of course it's not there. Checked around the house, asked the neighbors, called UPS who told me to call SW, called SW and Ryan just refunded me. Do stores lose money on this? It just kind of sucks because stuff gets misdelivered or picked off your front porch, so it's not really the store's or the buyer's fault
I thought that they just had insurance that might pay for it, but I guess if UPS marked it delivered then their job is "done," and insurance wouldn't cover that. Kinda stupid, since I have had twice where people 2 blocks away have brought packages to me saying that it was delivered to them.
I've gotten in the habit of just having UPS and Fedex hold packages at the nearest location if it is something remotely valuable. Some of my neighbors are a bit questionable, plus I am never home when they try to deliver anyway.
I did the same when I didn't have room mates, but now I'm living with 2 other people so generally there's at least one person there to take the package. That's really the worst part; marked delivered but no one heard a knock (and we have a dog that barks a lot when there's knocking) and no package left anywhere, but the store has to take on the cost of that? Really sucks
