We are becoming aware of this pernicious problem here, too. I think it goes something like this: The supplier (the ones who offer free shipping) makes a deal with UPS to deliver to local post offices without regard to street addresses. The post offices usually gives notice of packages on hand but in this case don't do so because they have been bypassed. Since UPS delivers to a central point here on Chappaquiddick, even if the post office gave such notification the delivery point contractor is under no obligation to pick up the packages. Beware of free shipping.
