Due to the impacts of Hurricane Florence on Staples distribution network, there will likely be three-day hub delays for all orders processed over the next several days. That means orders placed on today, Sept. 17 might not be received until Thursday/Friday, Sept. 20-21. Lumberton, Fayetteville and Wilmington Staples hubs are the hardest hit but the Staples team is working to divert product and minimize impact. That said, in many areas, road conditions and standing water are preventing timely deliveries. We appreciate your patience as we recover from the storm effects.
