Shipping Updates


*Learn about the global shipping crisis here: Business Of Home | Bloomberg | NY Times | Business Insider

Hello Book Clubbers! Over the past year we have faced many challenges when it comes to shipping during a global pandemic. We are still facing many difficulties regarding delays with receiving items from our suppliers due to not having enough shipping containers/boats to meet the increased demand currently facing manufacturers around the globe.
We are so sorry for the impact these delays have had on our boxes and are doing all we can behind-the-scenes to ensure we are not only ordering even further in advance, but we have created this page to ensure our subscribers are up-to-date as much as possible regarding any delays and will regularly keep this page updated whenever we have new information.
If you have any additional questions regarding your order, please reach out to us at info@onceuponabookclub.com and our team will be happy to help!

Worried your package won't arrive in time? Print out our mini box and gift message to give to your recipient in the meantime!
This can also be downloaded and emailed to give them a fun little DIY while they wait for their magical reading experience to arrive!

    US Shipping Updates!

    • We wanted to address some of the shipping delays currently affecting our boxes. Our packages are shipped via USPS priority, however despite this form of shipping, many of our customers are experiencing several delays with their packages arriving much longer than the expected 2-3 business days. USPS has been overwhelmed with packages this year due to COVID and many packages are arriving late. We've also been made aware that tracking information may update sporadically or not at all but packages are still arriving. This is an issue nationwide and all businesses are affected.
