AAO Shop Announces new Delivery Options, Pickup at AAO Events
We heard you and agree - The shipping & handling rates on the AAO Shop made purchasing single items difficult, so we're offering new delivery options with defined criteria.
As a non-profit that doesn't have the budget of a major retailer to offset the cost to ship packages, the AAO Shop must pass the cost of doing business onto our customers in the form of shipping and handling fees. With our new delivery options during the checkout process, these costs can be reduced:
Registration Fees & Tickets: Printed tickets are not provided for AAO Events, no shipping fee
Merchandise Priority Shipping: ships 3-5 business days, shipping fee based on total weight of order
Merchandise Pickup - June Alumni Social: pickup your order at the June 22 AAO Alumni Social, no shipping fee (2017 Aqua Team Tee not eligible)
Merchandise Pickup - Community Luncheon: pickup your order at the Candidate Community Luncheon on July 18, no shipping fee
Additional merchandise pickup opportunities will be provided throughout the year. A handling fee of $3.00 will continue to be added to all AAO Shop orders.
This week was the AAO Shop's first in providing AAO merchandise with several items being added in the weeks to come. "Exclusives for AAO Shop" will feature product lines prepared by local artists and designers exclusively for the AAO Shop. Each vendor is committed to donating a portion of their proceeds to the Minneapolis Aquatennial Ambassador Scholarship Fund.
