Now we have the United States mail delivery service delivering mail in mail boxes in my neighborhood after 8:00 PM. Some days my neighborhood has no residential mail delivery.

When I called and pointed put that the supermarket adds are due in residential mail boxs every Tuesday, the Livermore Independent newspaper is due in residential mail boxes every Thursday, and the Pleasanton Weekly is due in residential mail boxes every Friday.

I now receive mail every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Interesting view; counter view

- Lyft / Uber (lately have sucked but 12 mo ago was amazing

- Amazon will have almost anything to you in 2hrs or next day

- Nordstrom’s is still top tier (if you can find one)

But to your question, price has taken priority over customer service. If you’re going to buy based on price, you can’t sustain customer service
