Most destinations in the US (including USVI's and Puerto Rico) will see their package in 3 to 5 days. USPS packages also ship to US territories and US APO military addresses in very reasonable time frames.

Typical cutoff time is 3:00PM EST, but please call to confirm that all items are immediately available and pickup has not already been collected for the the day.
