US Post Office Service Announcement for Northern California PGE Black out

USPS released an announcement today that we are sharing for shoppers and sellers on Mercari, eBay, and Poshmark who have time restraints for getting packages shipped and orders processed.

As of 2:50 PM October 10, 2019 neither FedEx or UPS have issued similar Service Alerts on their website.

Due to the PG&E Power BlackOut of 2019 that began on October 9, 2019 and is anticipated to continue until October 13, 2019 the processing and shipping of packages and mail to most of Northern California is expected to be delayed.  

This also includes packages and mails being shipped out of Northern California because of closures, and the majority of sellers in Northern California are currently without internet access, power and local travel is not advised with the traffic lights having no power.

At the time of this announcement,  Mercari, eBay, and Poshmark have not issued any statements about providing extended shipping, processing, delivery times to sellers.
