How to Get Things Fast Online


Annika N., Staff Writer

In this time when people often can’t physically go to stores, many resort to online shopping. This has resulted in a boom of online sales, leading to a pile-up of online orders that don’t arrive, particularly items ordered from Amazon, which has prioritized essential deliveries. So where can you look to find the non-essential items you might still want or need? Your best bet is to simply not to place orders through Amazon. Say you’re looking for some art supplies to try out a new hobby. Instead of ordering through Amazon, go straight to a craft retailer like Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Or if you’re ordering some plant seeds instead, go to Home Depot’s website. Although shipping at these other online retailers may not be as speedy as it normally would be on Amazon, at least your order won’t be lost on the other side of the world.
