2021 Holiday Shipping Update

This year will be busier than ever for our shipping carriers, and supply chains are already encountering delays. We encourage you to shop as early as possible to beat the holiday rush and be sure you reserve your sweets while supplies last. You can order now, schedule delivery for December, and sit back and enjoy the season!

Shop as soon as possible for the best chance at Holiday Delivery. Most gifts will arrive in a timely manner, however, our shipping partner, UPS, is experiencing delays due to a higher than normal amount of packages in transit. As such, UPS is no longer making guarantees for Ground and 2 Day Air. We currently recommend that any gifts shipping to the West Coast are expedited via UPS 2 Day Air to increase the chances of Christmas Arrival. Thank you for understanding and choosing River Street Sweets® for your holiday gifting this year!

Some of our items may arrive with dry ice in the cooler. Please follow the unpacking instructions provided with these deliveries for proper handling. We do not allow bakery items to be in transit over a weekend so please select a ship date of Monday - Wednesday or we may need to delay your order to the following Monday. Thursday ship dates will require Next Day Air year round. Bakery items cannot ship to PO boxes, Military addresses, Alaska, or Hawaii.

MILITARY, PO BOXES, ALASKA, & HAWAII :
Some of our items cannot ship to military, PO Boxes, Alaska, or Hawaii addresses due to their perish-ability. These include Bakery items and Apples.
