Welcome back !!  We are happy to have the border open again!!  During COVID Mike has added a few commercial customers that allowed him to keep the doors open.  Now that everyone can come back, you may find at times, that he is unloading trucks outback and it may be a few minutes before he can wait on you.  PLEASE have PATIENCE ... he will get to you as quickly as he can.  Also, please allow him an extra day to get the packages all checked in.  If it is something that is necessary for emergency, rush or air freight, give him a call to check on order status.  207-538-6974

We have a new system and will be gathering email addresses and adding them to our computer program as time allows.  If you would like to get an email notification of when your package is actually "checked in", please send your email address with the names of who would be receiving packages for that email address, and we will get it added for you.  The email is mike@whoufm.com.   Once we get it set up, that will take the guessing game out of it for you.  

If you are a new customer, when placing an order, use YOUR name with 143 Military Street  Houlton, ME  04730.  There is no need to sign up before you place an order.  Please don't put Shiretown Package Receiving on it.  If your name is not on it, we have no way of knowing who it belongs to.  

We have also started clearing out packages that have been here since before COVID.  If we have not heard from you, they will be disposed of.  Going forward, we will be holding them for the 90 days as we have done in the past. 

Thank-you and we are beyond grateful that you have resumed your shopping and shipping to us!!  Let's hope this craziness is behind us.

Mike & Kim
