Smith’s Shoe Center will be closing operations on 12/31/2018.
How the Closing effects UPS Access Point Services at Smith’s Shoe Center
Our Access Point service will continue until Access Point makes plans to switch Access Point Delivery to another provider. Your packages will be arriving at Smith’s as usual and will be available for pickup as usual, until the UPS Access Point replacement is determined. You can always use UPS My Choice (a free service from UPS) to manage and monitor your inbound packages, and to redirect them where most convenient for you.
We are pleased to announce that we are now a UPS Access point! What does this mean? UPS Access Points provide pick-up and drop-off locations for your personal packages. If you have a package (or packages) labeled and ready to ship, you can simply drop it off to us, instead of tracking down a driver, or commuting across town to a UPS Store. Packages inbound to you that require your signature in order to be delivered can be re-routed to us in the event you are unavailable to receive the package at home, and we will hold them here (up to 7 days) for you to come and sign for them when you are available. UPS may automatically route packages (especially Next Day and Overnight) to us if a signature is required and you are not available to receive them.
If you have a door tag left indicating your package is headed to Smith’s Shoe Center, we should receive the package into our holding area the following delivery day (Note: Friday packages being routed to us, won’t arrive until Monday). You will be able to log onto UPS.com and track the Info tag number to see when it is available for pickup from us and then simply stop by with the info tag and valid photo id. You are welcome to call us at the store as well to see if your package has arrived to us yet. UPS delivers our packages including Access Point packages each morning and per the info tags will be typically available for pickup after 1pm the next delivery day (following their attempted delivery date). We generally receive our packages before 10:30am each morning and make packages available for pickup typically within 30 minutes of their delivery to us.
If you are shipping a package online or have a prepaid return label ready to go, you can drop your packages off to us and we will make sure to get it to UPS for you. UPS picks up our outbound packages each afternoon, so customer drop-offs are picked up daily around 3pm.
